We propose a non-iterative digital backward propagation technique, based on an inverse modified Volterra series transfer function to post-compensate transmission linear and nonlinear impairments in the presence of optical noise. Using a single-channel 40 Gb/s non-return to zero quadrature phase-shift keying optical signal propagated over 20x80 km of standard single-mode fiber, and performing digital post-compensation around the Nyquist rate, our compensation algorithm is able to surpass the maximum accuracy obtained with a symmetric split-step Fourier method, enabling to increase the nonlinear tolerance by approximately 2 dB.
