Waveform degradation due to polarization and chromatic dispersions in a single-mode fiber is calculated for a coherent CPFSK signal. Both dispersions distort the amplitude of the baseband signal and can limit transmission distance and capacity. For instance, polarization dispersion of 5 ps will restrict a bit rate by ~ 60 Gb/s when chromatic dispersion is fully reduced using a dispersion-shift fiber or applying electrical equalization.
