Am Fiber Optic Trunks - A Noise And Distortion Analysis (1989)

By David Grubb III , Yudhi Trisno, PhD

Nonlinear optical effects in single mode fiber can limit the amount of power that can be coupled into a fiber. The threshold powers for these effects are calculated. The maximum practical optical modulation depth is limited by clipping. This clipping occurs when the peaks of the RF signal drive the laser below threshold. The maximum modulation depth is determined for both standard and HRC systems. The results are used to project system carrier to noise performance.
