The capacity of optical fiber channels is limited by a nonlinearity that causes inter-channel phase noise due to amplitude-to-phase conversion. To better understand the limitations, a simple model of white phase noise is introduced.

Next, representative lower bounds on fiber capacity are reviewed and a capacity upper bound is developed. The results extend to multi-mode fiber models.

Bio: Gerhard Kramer works at the Technical University of Munich. He received his doctoral degree from the ETH Z ├╝rich in 1998. Since then, he was with Endora Tech AG for 2 years, the Math Center at Bell Labs for over 8 years, and the University of Southern California (USC) for almost 2 years. He joined TUM in 2010.

His research interests are primarily in information theory and communications theory, with applications to wireless, copper, and optical fiber networks.
