Intrachannel four-wave mixing (IFWM) in highly dispersed differential phase-shift keying (DPSK) transmission systems is studied with a simple analytical model and numerical simulation. It is found that the IFWM effect in DPSK systems is smaller and less dependent on the bit pattern than in on-off-keying systems with the same average power. The reduced pulse energy in DPSK and correlation between the nonlinear phase shifts of two adjacent pulses contribute to the robustness of DPSK versus IFWM.
