Abstract

The possibility of periodically amplifying dark solitons in a normally dispersive optical fiber is studied. It is found that, as with bright solitons, an all-optical, repeaterless, and stable system for dark-soliton transmission at a rate of 20 GHz over thousands of kilometers in a lossy fiber is achievable, if periodic amplification using stimulated Raman scattering is incorporated.
