Abstract

Transmission of 50-psec solitons in a 75-km recirculating loop of dispersion-shifted fiber (D = 1.38 psec/nm/km at λs), using low-gain erbium amplifiers spaced 25 km apart, displays jitter in pulse arrival times consistent with low error rates for transmission over 9000 km and for bit rates ≲4 Gbits/sec. Furthermore, a study of soliton pair propagation in the same loop shows no significant interaction over 9000 km for pair spacings ≥5τ.
