Abstract

We consider limitations on unfiltered transmission of dispersion-managed solitons, arising from the Gordon-Haus jitter, adjacent pulse interaction,and signal-to-noise degradation. We maximize the range of allowed values of average dispersion, thereby providing the first step in optimization of dispersion maps for wavelength-division-multiplexed lightwave systems. As specific examples,we consider dispersion maps made of several different types of optical fiber and study their performance for transmission of 10-40 Gb/s channels over distances in the range from 3000 km to 10 000 km.
