Abstract

A scheme is proposed for high-bandwidth, robust data transmission in silica fibers in the normal-dispersion regime. The scheme uses a uniform periodic train of dark solitons to eliminate completely the dispersion of a data stream encoded in linear pulses of small but otherwise arbitrary amplitude in the orthogonal polarization. Data pulses carried by dark solitons of differing contrast do not interfere with one another when the solitons collide. Thus many channels, each associated with a different contrast, can be multiplexed on the same fiber.
