Abstract

Optical phase jitter limits the performance of amplified differential-phase-shift-keyed optical communication systems. We propose an approach to evaluate the phase jitter for arbitrary pulses in dispersion-managed links based on the moment method. This calculation requires only the knowledge of the unperturbed optical signal, therefore avoiding computationally intensive Monte Carlo simulations. We apply this method to a dispersion-managed soliton system and a quasi-linear dispersion-compensated channel and demonstrate its validity by comparing the obtained results with Monte Carlo simulations.
