This paper is showing the non-linear effect i.e. self-phase modulation in WDM system. Nonlinear effects in optical fibers are recent area of academic research in the optical fiber based WDM system. Here we will simulate the result for optical fiber of length 1000kms.We will analyze the result as Quality Factor, Bit Error Rate at different values of dispersion. We will vary the optical dispersion from -5ps/ns/km to 5ps/nm/km and we will see the result through eye diagrams. We will also plot the graphs for different value of Quality Factors and Bit Error Rate. The result is analyzed using OPTSIM simulation software. In WDM optical system operating at a very high rates (beyond 10 Gbps), nonlinearity such as SPM, XPM, FWM play a significant role. These nonlinear effects can be counteracting through proper system design.
