Abstract

A fiber-optic system design with optical backpropagation that uses an optical phase conjugator, high-dispersion fibers, and highly nonlinear fibers is investigated. The proposed technique outperforms the midpoint optical phase conjugation and digital backpropagation with the same step size.
