Paper Abstract

An analytical expression was obtained for the timing jitter of ultrashort solitons, taking into account the group velocity dispersion, the Raman effect and the third-order dispersion. This expression can also be useful to evaluate the timing jitter of a communication system using dispersion-decreasing fibers. It is shown that the higher- order effects increase the timing jitter beyond that of the Gordon-Haus value for solitons shorter than ~ 10 ps. Dispersion-decreasing fibers show a greater variation of the jitter control distance with the amplifier spacing, in comparison with the constant-dispersion fibers.
