Paper Abstract

We examine the main constraints on the design of single- channel, high-bit rate soliton communication systems. In the average soliton regime, the main limitation for transoceanic fiber links is the Gordon-Haus jitter, while for shorter transmission distances it arises from the discrete in-line amplification. The use of dispersion-decreasing fibers and of periodic optical phase conjugation can increase the system capacity.
