Paper Abstract

We derive an analytical expression for the variance of the timing jitter of a soliton transmission system using super-Gaussian sliding-frequency filters. By theory and computer simulation, we demonstrate that super-Gaussian sliding-frequency filters are more effective to reduce timing jitter than conventional filters without sacrificing the SNR. We also show that the sliding action of the super-Gaussian filters enhances timing jitter.
