Can you please say how to calculate the central wavelength from a range of frequencies? I have attached my paper here. In the section V. Simulation Design , it sets two lasers with center wavelengths 1550.5nm and 1555.7nm and I think it is set according it to the frequency bands of the the channels. Can anyone please say how to calculate it from that frequency band?

      Hi Leeba,

      I did not find any clues in paper either but I don’t think this is a problem, since these parameters are chosen with the assumption that they match fiber characteristics as you mentioned. In OptiSystem, if you don’t choose the option “user defined reference wavelength”, the signal central wavelength will automatically be chosen as the reference wavelength.

      Regards
