Long-distance 40-Gbit/s soliton transmission over standard fiber by use of dispersion management

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We demonstrate, through numerical simulations, the possibility of transmitting solitonlike pulses over 2000 km of standard fiber at a single-channel data rate of 40 Gbits/s. The system used here employs a novel dispersion map to overcome the large fiber dispersion. The longest transmission distance was achieved with pulses that did not exhibit the enhanced energy normally associated with dispersion management and indeed had lower energy than an equivalent average soliton. © 1998 Optical Society of America.
