    Abstract

    The effect of gain saturation on parametric amplification of 16-QAM signals is investigated in terms of signal distortion. The relative impact of gain saturation, nonlinear phase rotation and nonlinear phase noise is discussed. Experimental results at 14 GBd confirm the conclusions of the numerical analysis.
