Abstract

A closed-form theory is presented to characterize the noise accumulation in a transmission system with grating dispersion compensation, and its implications for the system performance are discussed. It is shown that the spectral distribution of the noise depends on the mapping used to compensate for the dispersion. Optimum system performance is obtained for compensation maps that are symmetric with respect to the middle point of each compensated span.
