Abstract
Advanced modulation formats are an emerging area since they allow reducing the symbol rate while encoding more bits per symbol. This allows higher spectral efficiencies. In addition, we can achieve higher data rates using lower-speed equipment like in all-optical format conversion systems, an important step for the development of systems with high transmission rates. In this paper we study the impact of some impairments found in all-optical advanced format conversions based on cross phase modulation (XPM) on a highly nonlinear fiber (HNLF), such as amplified spontaneous emission (ASE), nonlinear fiber length and group velocity dispersion (GVD), and analyze its performance based on error vector magnitude (EVM) for different bitrate transmissions. This simulation study is applied on earlier proposed phase modulated format conversion where n nonreturn-to-zero on-off keying (NRZ-OOK) channels at 10 Gb/s are converted into a return-to-zero m phase shift keying (RZ-mPSK) at 20Gb/s. We extend the work with simulations and show the results for n NRZ-OOK channels at 20Gb/s, 40 Gb/s and 50Gb/s to RZ-PSK at 40Gb/s, 80 Gb/s and 100Gb/s, respectively.
