Modulator output and fiber transmission characteristics of optical single sideband (SSB) modulations are analyzed under the assumption that SSB modulators are constructed using Mach-Zehnder (MZ) interferometers. The fiber input signal and the detected signal are derived theoretically for SSB modulation with and without an optical carrier. Optical SSB fiber transmission simulations show that the received signal waveform is degraded by harmonic components due to non-linear switching curve of MZ interferometer as a component of SSB modulators even if the Hilbert transformers is ideal for the definition. The optical SSB suppressed carrier is preferred to the SSB with an optical carrier from a viewpoint of waveform degradation.
