Abstract

The influence of Kerr non-linearity (KNL) on optical pulse transmission at 1550 nm wavelength in systems composed of standard monomode fibre and dispersion compensating fibre is investigated experimentally. The significant dependence of the temporal and spectral evolution of picosecond pulses on KNL is demonstrated even at moderate peak powers. Consequences for practical transmission system design are pointed out.
