Impact of Pump Phase-Modulation on the Bit-Error Rate in Fiber-Optical Parametric-Amplifier-Based Systems
Journal article, 2007

Pump phase-modulation is often needed to suppress stimulated Brillouin scattering in fiber-optical parametric amplifiers. We show that while this causes a gain variation with a corresponding Q-value penalty, the actual bit-error-rate degradation is not always significant. The findings are supported by experimental studies.
