The asymptotic probability density of nonlinear phase noise, often called the Gordon-Mollenauer effect, is derived analytically when the number of fiber spans is large. Nonlinear phase noise is the summation of infinitely many independently distributed noncentral chi2 random variables with two degrees of freedom. The mean and the standard deviation of those… CONTINUE READING
