Abstract.  Semianalytic models are developed to deterministically calculate the variances of degenerate and nondegenerate four-wave mixing (FWM) noises for dispersion-managed dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) systems with 8-Ary modulations [i.e., 8-level amplitude- and differential phase-shift keying (8APSK) and constant-amplitude optical differential 8-level phase-shift keying (D8PSK)]. The semianalytic models include various important propagation effects for exact numerical results. A 5.28-Tb/s (40-Gs/s/ch) 100-GHz-spaced 33-channel DWDM system with a dispersion map is then numerically analyzed by using the newly derived semianalytic models. It is numerically validated that FWM impacts coming from 8APSK pump channels are more severe than those coming from D8PSK ones, where pump channels denote the channels whose energies are transferred to a probe channel through the FWM process. The numerical results show that although FWM tolerance of a central channel with 8APSK is worse than that with D8PSK, a central channel with 8APSK is still superior to that with D8PSK when some linear noises and FWM noise are simultaneously taken into account for our given system conditions, which is mainly attributed to a relatively larger minimum Euclidean distance for the 8APSK constellation than the D8PSK one.
