34130 Introduction to Optical Communication.
C. Peucheret, B. Zsigri
This note describes the simulation exercise of the course 34130 Introduction to Optical Communication on group velocity dispersion and self-phase modulation in optical fibres. After introducing a general optical communication system, the propagation of optical pulses in a dispersive fibre will be described with special emphasis on the simple case of a Gaussian pulse, followed by a brief introduction to optical fibre nonlinearities, in particular self-phase modulation. The three exercises, making use of the VPIplayer environment, will then be introduced. The main goals of the exercises are: 1) to introduce the relation between the time and frequency domain descriptions of a signal, 2) to observe and calculate the time domain pulse broadening due to dispersion, and 3) to address the power dependence of the fibre behaviour due to the power dependent refractive index.
