Abstract

We review the modeling of inter-channel nonlinear interference noise (NLIN) in fiber-optic communication systems, focusing on the accurate extraction of the NLIN variance, the dependence on modulation format, the role of nonlinear phase-noise, and the existence of temporal correlations. We show ways in which temporal correlations can be exploited for reducing the impact of NLIN, and discuss the prospects of this procedure in future systems.
