Abstract

Amplifier noise induces fluctuations on the soliton’s mean frequency and amplitude. These fluctuations disturb the soliton phase difference, which modifies the soliton interaction. Amplifier noise jitter and soliton interaction cannot be studied independently for strongly interacting solitons in high-repetition-rate long-distance transmissions. A first-order analytical modeling for the jitter of two interacting solitons with periodic amplification is presented.
