Abstract

We investigate experimentally and theoretically the effect of signal power and dispersion compensation scheme in unrepeated return-to-zero single-channel 40-Gb/s 150-km transmission using standard single-mode fiber (SMF), nonzero dispersion shifted fiber [TrueWave fiber (TWF)] and dispersion shifted fiber (DSF). It is shown, that standard SMF allows significantly higher fiber-input power than nonzero dispersion shifted fiber or dispersion shifted fiber and, therefore, offers larger transmission spans.
