Paper Abstract

With proper programming of the fiber dispersion, a new nonlinear stationary pulse called the dispersion managed soliton (DMS) can be transmitted. DMS has properties superior to the ideal optical solitons in reduction of the timing jitter caused by amplifier noise and/or interactions with other solitons. Remarkable experimental results, such as 1 Tbit/s WDM Transmission over 3,000km or 40 Gbit/s single channel transmission over 10,000km have been achieved using DMS . The talk presents a review of recent progress in DMS research both in theory and experiments and discusses their practical implementations.
