On the nonlinear distortion of subcarrier multiplexed systems owing to stimulated Brillouin scattering

  • Muhammad Taher Abuelma'atti


Analytical expressions are obtained for predicting the harmonic and intermodulation performance of subcarrier multiplexed systems owing to stimulated Brilloun scattering. These expressions are in terms of the ordinary Bessel functions with arguments depenedent on the modulation index.
