Title: Method and system for optimizing the pulse form of an amplitude modulated optical signal

Abstract: The influences on transmission quality caused by chirp and self-phase modulation are at least largely corrected by way of an optimally set operating point of the modulator (2). Suitable criteria are obtained in control loops in order to maintain the optimal setting.
