Hi all….
i am currently studying the optical output power from a laser depending on various parameters of the Laser and the input signal.In my previous post i mentioned the effect of increasing input power of the laser and the use of RZ,NRZ sequences.
Now i would like to know about the various modulation schemes that can be used for observing the output from a laser.

      hello zulkarnain,,,
      the various types of modulation schemes are external modulation (which include two techniques electro absorbtion modulation and electro opto modulator)..
      another technique isDirect Current Modulation of ssemiconductor laser.

      moreover you can refer the links

        Hi zulkarnain,
        I would suggest you to go through all the digital modulation schemes and then apply a modulation scheme as per your requirement. if your requirement is met by some of the modulation scheme then you would be done. You can compare results for different modulation schemes and then check which one gives the best results as per your requirement. Hope it is helpful.

      Hi zulkarnain,
      As far as modulation schemes are concerned, there are number of digital modulation schemes you can use for your system design. Please it would be convenient if you try to be more specific regarding your system design. However, i am attaching a link which mentions different digital modulation schemes. You may refer to it for further reference. It would definitely help you.

      I am studying the optical output power from a laser depending on various parameters of the Laser and the input signal like different modulation schemes and the various input parameters like varying input bias current, the input bit rate.
      Can you tell me about the modulation schemes which will be better to work on?
      Answer will be appreciated..

        Hello zulkarnain,
        To my understanding i guess you are referring to different modulation schemes. Well there are many which could serve your purpose but as i mentioned in last comment you must implement few of them to your system design and check for the performance. I would suggest to use QPSK or DP-QPSK or for that matter QAM. You can check which gives you the better response and then proceed accordingly.

        hi zulkarnain,
        I hope you got a good idea about different modulation techniques and their implications in different designs. I would suggest you to implement all the modulation techniques mentioned in my previous comment and compare results based on these modulation scheme. I hope it will help that way.
        best regards

      Hi ZULKARNAIN,
      You can also vary laser power for advanced modulation schemes like CSRZ, MDRZ, DRZ and plot the simulated results like Q-factor and Min. BER against Optical power.
      So, i am uploading 8 channel CSRZ modulation schemes of WDM system.

      Thank you ranjeet for uploading the osd files of advanced modulation schemes.
      But i am studying the effect of some basic modulation techniques and then i will go for advanced schemes.

      hi zulkarnain…
      you just stick to basic modulation schemes and study their effects for various parameters and then compare the results obtained with your requirements,,,,.. hope you will get the idea what to select for your project,,\

      Thank you tanveer for your reply.
      You are right that i should go for basic modulation techniques. To some extent i got the idea that how i should compare the results.
      Also i would like to thank you everyone for their answers and valuable time.
