Abstract

10 Gb/s single channel soliton transmission over more than 10 000 km in a standard communication fiber with distributed Raman amplification has been demonstrated in a recirculating fiber loop setup. It has been found that the Gordon-Haus timing jitter becomes the main limiting factor,provided that the generation of dispersive waves due to polarization mode dispersion has been minimized by adjusting the polarization state of the signal.
