Numerical Study of Lumped Dispersion Compensation for 40-Gb/s Return-to-Zero Differential Phase-Shift Keying Transmission


Lumped dispersion compensation is numerically investigated for 40-Gb/s return-to-zero differential phase-shift-keying transmission. Using pseudorandom binary sequence lengths up to 2<sup>11</sup>-1, simulation results indicate that better long-distance transmission performance can be achieved using lumped dispersion compensation than using conventional… (More)
