Optical phase conjugation is a well-known technique to provide dispersion and nonlinearity compensation directly in the optical domain. The link properties play an important role in the achievable improvements in transmission reach/rate. Here, we review our recent investigations on the impact of sub-optimum transmission links as well as our effort on the implementation of the optical phase conjugator itself looking beyond using highly nonlinear fibers as nonlinear medium and focusing on integrated silicon waveguides. Preliminary results on combining optical phase conjugation with digital techniques such as probabilistic shaping will also be discussed.
