Paper Abstract

An optical phase conjugator is used to enhance the robustness of optical pulses to polarization dispersion. The polarization components of optical pulses form a breather in birefringent fibers firstly and make a polarization component along fast axis compressed through spectra inversion function of the optical phase conjugator. The two polarization modes are compressed further due to the cross-phase modulation effect and trap each other fully in time domain. The optical phase conjugator is required to settle down before higher birefringent fibers in order to suppress the influence of birefringence effectively. The limit value of δ reaches 7.5 that can be suppressed by enhanced robustness of the optical pulses by using the optical phase conjugator in the case that each polarization component is a fundamental soliton. Moreover, the function of the optical phase conjugator will reduce the delay of optical pulses for a different polarization angle.
