Picosecond soliton control using nonlinear optical loop mirrors

N J Smith, Nick Doran

Research output: Chapter in Book/Published conference outputConference publication


We show that by inserting nonlinear optical loop mirrors into an optical fibre transmission line, that 1.5 ps solitons may be transmitted over at least 750 km, with amplifiers spaced at 15 km intervals.
