The nonlinear effects in optical fibers are an area of active research. The development of multiwavelength ystems has resulted in a renewed interest in nonlinear effects in optical fibers. The important works carried out in these areas are briefly presented here. One of the major nonlinear effects, Four-Wave Mixing (FWM) has been studied extensively in the context of optical fiber multichannel, multiamplifier systems composed of short fibers with different zero-dispersion wavelength. Stimulated Raman Scattering (SRS), which forms another major nonlinear effect has as well been studied due to its effects of power depletion and cross talk in multichannel optical fiber communication systems. A thorough investigation of major results arrived in these areas by several researchers has been discussed and highlighted in this review article.
