The performance of dense wavelength division multiplexed (DWDM) soliton transmission system for returnto-zero (RZ) and non-return-to-zero (NRZ) modulation formats have been investigated. The main aim of this paper is to estimate and mitigate the four wave mixing (FWM) power by using in-line optical phase conjugator (OPC). The effect of FWM has been estimated using real fiber link having nonlinear and attenuation losses. The FWM power is strongly suppressed by introducing destructive interference between the first and second halves of in-line OPC. It has been indicated that RZ with OPC yields the better performance with FWM power suppression (more than 20 dBm in certain cases) with reasonable bit error rate and Q-factor.
