Abstract

We evaluate the trade-off in optical bandwidth between signal-to-excess optical noise ratio and dispersion penalty in Gbit/s spectrum-sliced WDM systems. Furthermore, we demonstrate for the first time that, apart from producing intersymbol interference, dispersion also increases the excess optical noise.
