International Journal of Engineering Research & Technology (IJERT)ISSN: 2278-0181Vol. 3 Issue 4, April - 2014Electronic Compensation for IntramodalDispersionArchana CProf. Helen MascreenProfessor, Opto Electronics and Communication SystemsDept. of Electronics and Communication Engg,TKM Institute of Technology, Kollam, Kerala, India.Abstract- Optical fiber communication is a way of transmitting theinformation from one place to another by modulating the lightsignal with the information signal. Optical fiber communicationsystems primarily operate at wavelengths near 1.55 μm in orderto coincide with the minimum loss point of optical fiber andthereby maximizing the transmission distance. But, at thiswavelength, there is a significant amount of group velocitydispersion (GVD) that limits the achievable propagation distance.Dispersion in a single mode fiber (SMF) is known as intramodaldispersion or chromatic dispersion (CD) which results in pulsespreading and causes intersymbol interference (ISI). Coherentdetection employing multilevel modulation formats has becomeone of the most promising technologies for next generation highspeed transmission systems due to the high power and spectralefficiencies. Using the powerful digital signal processing (DSP),coherent optical receivers allow the significant equalization ofintramodal dispersion, Intramodal dispersion only causes ISI, butit also introduces a power penalty, which can cause degradation ofthe system's SNR. In this paper, electronic dispersioncompensation (EDC) achieved with the help of DSP. Thesimulation has to be carried out using optisystem v 12Keywords: Dispersion, intersymbol interference, group velocitydispersion, intra modal dispersion, single mode fiber, signal tonoise ratio, electronic dispersion compensationtelecommunications carriers prefer to increase the capacity oftheir existing fiber links by using dense wavelength-divisionmultiplexing (DWDM) systems and/or higher bit ratessystems. Most of the installed optical fibers are old and exhibitphysical characteristics that may limit their ability to transmithigh-speed signals. An information signal becomes distorteddue to attenuation and dispersion as it travels in an opticalfiber. Dispersion is the spreading in the time domain of asignal pulse as it travels through the fiber. Both attenuation anddispersion affect repeater spacing in a long distance fiber-opticcommunication system. Dispersion affects the bandwidth ofthe system, hence maintaining low dispersion is of equalimportance for ensuring increased system informationcapacity, versatility and cost effectivenessDifferent types of optical fibers have differentdispersions. For a single-mode optical fiber, the only source ofdispersion is due to group velocity dispersion (GVD). CD isthe destructive forces for pulse propagation in ultra high-bitrate optical transmission system and cause power penalty. Inorder to improve overall system performance influenced by thedispersion, several dispersion compensation technologies wereproposed. Intramodal dispersion compensation in optical fiberCommunication systems is an open issue. In the case ofdispersion-uncompensated metropolitan and regional networks,transmission over standard single mode Fiber (SMF) at 10Gb/s is strongly limited to about 80–100 km .For conventionalnon return-to-zero (NRZ) intensity-modulated, Direct-detected(IM-DD) signals. Dispersion compensation can be generallyachieved by either optical or electrical techniques. Opticaltechniques, such as the use of dispersion-compensating fibers(DCF) or chirped fiber Bragg gratings, are generally expensiveand not easily reconfigurable for varying dispersion conditions.In this project, Intra modal dispersion compensated with thehelp of dsp. More compact electronic components should beused in order to increase system performance and achievebetter integrationIJERTPG Scholar, Opto Electronics and Communication Systems,Dept. of Electronics and Communication Engg,TKM Institute of Technology, Kollam, Kerala, India.I.INTRODUCTIONNowadays communication systems use optical wavesas carriers; hence, the bit rate-distance product BL can beimproved several orders of magnitude compared to othersystem. The most appropriate media that are used as channelsin these systems are optical fibers. The first-encounteredproblem was that available optical fibers during that time hadextremely high loss, exceeding 1000 dB/km. This problemchallenged the researchers and engineers to find processes bylow-loss optical fibers could be fabricated. Finally, solved in1970 when optical fibers having acceptable attenuation werefirst made. The combination of low-loss optical fibers and theadvance in semiconductor technology made optical fibercommunication systems practically possible.In 1978, the first systems were commerciallydeployed. Their operating wavelength was at 0.8 μm, and theywere capable of carrying data at the bit rate of 50–100 Mb/swith a repeater spacing of approximately 10 km. As thetechnologies in optical-fiber fabrication as well as systemcomponents progressed, the BL product was increasedcontinually. Telecommunications service providers have toface continuously growing bandwidth demands in all networksareas, from long haul to access. Because installing the newcommunication links would require huge investments,IJERTV3IS040252II.SYSTEM ARCHITECTUREThe system can be divided into five main parts: DP-QPSKTransmitter, Transmission Link, Coherent Receiver, DigitalSignal Processing, and Detection& Decoding.

Furthermore, since coherent detection maps theentire optical field within the receiver bandwidth into theelectrical domain it maximizes the efficacy of the signalprocessing. This allows impairments, which have traditionallylimited 40Gbit/s systems to be overcome, since both chromaticdispersion and polarization mode dispersionTransmission linkTransmitterPRBSDSPCoherent receiverververRECEIVERFigure 1 Block diagram of dsp based EDCThe most advanced detection method is coherentdetection where the receiver computes decision variables basedon the recovery of the full electric field, which contains bothamplitude and phase information. Coherent detection thusallows the greatest flexibility in modulation formats, asinformation can be encoded in amplitude and phase, or both inphase (I) and quadrature (Q) components of a carrier. Coherentdetection requires the receiver to have knowledge of the carrierphase, as the received signal is demodulated by a LO thatserves as an absolute phase reference In direct detection asshown in Figure (2), in an opt electrical photo detector (aphotodiode) the light intensity 𝐸 2 is converted in an electricalsignal and the phase information is totally lost.III.DSP FOR DP-QPSKThis is used for linear impairment of the fiber for 16 QAMmodulation format through the following modulation format Analog to digital conversion(down sampling) Dispersion compensationAnalog to digital conversion is a down sampling process. Herewe have select two bit per sampling. However, the samplingrate can be changed. For intramodal dispersion in the absenceof nonlinearity the optical fiber can be modulated as a phaseonly filter with the following transfer function𝐷𝜆 2 𝑍G (𝑧, 𝜔) exp (-j4𝜋𝐶𝜔2 𝑗𝑆 𝜆 4 𝜔 3 𝑧24𝜋 2 𝐶 2)Input optical signalIn which the first part is the effect of fiber dispersion and thesecond term is the dispersion slope for multi-channelapplications. To compensate for the dispersion, multiply theoutput field with the inverse of the channel transfer function(FIR filter).

These received electrical signals are thenamplified with a set of four electrical amplifier having gain 15dB .After amplification the signals are passed throughLow Pass Gaussian filters for eliminating the frequenciesabove required band. After the four signals are amplifiedand filtered, they passed in to the DSP unit for intramodaldispersion compensation. The four signals enter the DSPfirst they are converted to digital domain for processingthen the fiber dispersion is compensated using a simpletransversal digital filter. In the absence of fibernonlinearity, the fiber optic could modeled as a filter withthe transfer function as given in EquationOutput from the serial to parallel converter fed into phase shiftkeying generator. There m ary is generated. The bandwidthrequired for transmission of binary digital waveforms may bevery large. In particular, for a channel of bandwidth B Hz theNyquist rate is 1/T 2B symbols per second. In the case ofbinary signaling each symbol carries one bit of information, sothe information rate is limited to 2B bits per second. Clearlyone can increase the information rate through a channel byincreasing the bandwidth and the associated symbol rate.However, if the channel bandwidth is to remain fixed, then theonly option is to increase the amount of information encodedin a symbol.
