Main Module

fiber_prop_nonlinear_coherent_qpsk.m

Compensation of Chromatic Dispersion (CD) and Self Phase Modulation (SPM) in a Long Haul Nonlinear Coherent QPSK Fiber Optic Communication System through Digital Signal Processing (DSP).


This Module calls the following Sub Modules and Components:

(1) power_meter.m
Calculates the average power in dBm.

(2) constellation_diagram.m
Plots the constellation.

(3) tx_nrz_psk.m
The cw signal is modulated by an PSK data. To realize QPSK modulation, tx_nrz_psk.m is called twice, for the in-phase and quadrature components.

(4) fiber_prop.m
Solves the Nonlinear Schrödinger Equation (NLSE) using a split-step Fourier scheme.

(5) amp.m
Inline amplifier is realized using this function.

(6) gauss.m
A Gaussian bandpass filter is introduced. The half-bandwidth (‘bw’) should be specified.  This could also be used as a low pass filter and in this case, ‘bw’ is the 3-dB bandwidth.

(7) raised_cosine.m
Raised cosine function in time domain

(8) down_sample_CD.m
This function does down-sampling with number of sample per symbol = down_sample_factor. For example, if down_sample_factor = 4, it means the number of samples per symbol at the receiver after down-sampling = 4.

(9) ber_calc_qpsk.m
Calculates the BER by comparing the received bit pattern with the transmitted bit pattern.


Explore Further this Module:

13.1 Turn off the nonlinearity (set ‘gam’=0) and plot the BER as a function of transmission distance. Choose the launch power (av_power_dBm = -6 dBm). Change the transmission distance from 120X80 km to 240X80 km. Change the number of bits, if needed. Observe that BER increases with distance.

13.2 Repeat 13.1 at a higher launch power (say – 3 dBm). Observe that BER is lower than that in 13.1 since higher launch power implies better performance in a linear system.

13.3 Turn on the nonlinearity (set ‘gam’=1.1 W ^{-1} km ^{-1}).  Fix the transmission distance as 150X80 km. Change the launch power from -8 dBm to 3 dBm (with an increment of 2 dBm) and plot the BER vs launch power. Observe that the BER decreases initially (linear regime) and then starts to increase (nonlinear regime).

13.4 Repeat 13.3 for a different transmission distance say 100X80 km. Adjust the number of bits to get a reliable estimate of BER.

13.5 Design and simulate following coherent QPSK fiber optic system links with digital signal processing:
