Abstract

The acoustic effect significantly increases the timing jitter of solitons in communication lines. We calculate the correlation in near-neighbor soliton time shifts that result from the acoustic interaction and show that the acoustic effect can cause correlated errors that cannot be corrected with standard, simple error-correction codes such as the Hamming code.
