The field of nonlinear optics has continued to grow at a tremendous rate since its inception in 1961 and has proven to be a nearly inexhaustible source of new phenomena and optical techniques. In optical communication systems the term nonlinearity refers to the dependence of the system on power of the optical beam/s being launched into the fiber cable. Nonlinear effects in optical fibers have become an area of academic research and of great importance in the optical fiber based systems. Several experiments in the past have shown that the deployment of high-bit-rate multi-wavelength systems together with optical amplifiers creates major nonlinear effects such as Stimulated Raman Scattering (SRS), Stimulated Brillioun Scattering (SBS), Self-Phase Modulation (SPM), Cross-Phase Modulation self-phase modulation based wavelength conversion using different types of fibers (XPM) and Four-Wave-Mixing (FWM).
