Abstract

In this short communication, we have explored and compared the performance of Alternate Phase Return-to-Zero (APRZ) modulation format on both strongly and weakly managed dispersion maps with varying path average dispersion values. Our findings show that, as opposed to 0 or 180 deg APRZ, 90 deg APRZ is more efficient for both strongly and weekly managed dispersion maps in minimizing Intra Channel Fourwave Mixing (IFWM) for reliable 40Gb/s transmission.
