Paper Abstract

A new ultrashort bit carrier called the guiding-center soliton is used to shape and to store the multibit binary words. The essential property of such a carrier to return to its own initial width after a passage through an extremely long-haul fiber without any recovery is successfully exploited to advantage. It is experimentally demonstrated that semiconductor laser source generated 32-bit words, including picosecond optical guiding-center soliton pulses, could be stored in up to 250 km length single-mode fiber loop.
