Simulation of Gaussian Pulses Propagation Through Single Mode Optical Fiber Using MATLAB


Computer-aided modeling and simulation software programs are essential tools to predict how an optical communication component, link, or network will function and perform. This paper aims to investigate the various effects on pulses propagation in optical transmission systems utilizing the MATLAB program. Dispersion and Attenuation effects are explored. The simulation of Gaussian pulses propagation through single mode optical fiber, simplifies the design of optical communication system and make the design process more efficient, less expensive, and faster.
