Abstract

With sufficient Raman gain to compensate exactly for net fiber energy loss, we have demonstrated distortionless propagation of 10-psec FWHM fundamental (N = 1) soliton pulses (λ = 1.56 μm) over a 10-km length of singlemode fiber. The implications of this experiment for development of an all-optical, high-bit-rate, long-distance telecommunications system are discussed briefly.
