Abstract : Our research is focused on theoretical investigations of advanced optical fiber communication systems and can be grouped into three broad areas: WDM networks, coherent analog links, and optical fiber nonlinearities. In the area of WDM networks, we proposed and investigated a novel WDM network architecture (STARNET), a novel combined phase/amplitude modulation format, and a high-speed optics-to-computer interface for STARNET. In the area of coherent analog links, we investigated angle and amplitude modulated systems for linewidth-insensitive analog applications and direct-frequency-modulated subcarrier-multiplexed systems. In the area of fiber nonlinearities, we investigated four-wave mixing, thermally induced parasitic phase modulation, and a new type of soliton.
