Abstract

The four-wave mixing (FWM) suppression effect of dispersion distributed fibers (DDF's), which have a nonuniform chromatic dispersion along their length, has been investigated experimentally and theoretically. We fabricated two different kinds of DDF by the vapor-phase axial deposition (VAD) method to clarify the FWM suppression effect. Moreover, we investigated experimentally the effect of our fabricated DDF's on the transmission characteristics of 4 × 10 Gb/s wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) systems. We confirmed that the proposed DDF's can not only suppress FWM but also improve the input power limitation for WDM systems.
