Fiber nonlinearities generally result in system impairments.1 Consequently it is necessary to employ countermeasures, such as spans with alternating signs of dispersion, to counteract their detrimental effects. However, we observe for pulses that initially have a large anomalous chirp, fiber nonlinearities can actually have beneficial effects.
