Lecture note - 34130 Introduction to Optical Communication - February 2008
Pulse propagation in optical fibres.
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.
