Application of local error method to SSSF simulation of vector propagation in dispersion compensated optical links

Application of local error method to SSSF simulation of vector propagation in dispersion... A local error method based on an analytical scheme previously developed for the scalar optical fiber channel is applied to the second-order symmetrized split-step Fourier simulation of polarization multiplexed signal propagation through dispersion compensated optical fiber links. It is found that the global simulation accuracy for the vector propagation can be satisfied using the local error bound from a scalar propagation model for the same global error over a large range of simulation accuracy, chromatic dispersion, and differential group delay. Furthermore, carefully designed numerical simulations are used to show that similar local simulation error are obtained for vector simulations and that the similar local error leads to higher computational efficiency compared to other prevalent step-size selection schemes. The scaling of the global simulation error with respect to the number of optical fiber spans is demonstrated, and global error control for multi-span simulations is proposed. Combining the local error and global error control, the developed simulation scheme can significantly speed up the time-consuming simulations in coherent optical fiber communication system analysis and design.
