Abstract

We have measured the timing jitter for dispersion-managed solitons in a recirculating loop for distances up to 20,000  km. The data were obtained with modulated data, 27-1 and 223-1 pseudorandom binary sequence patterns, at 10-Gbit/s rates and with an unmodulated pulse train at 10  GHz. We have obtained good agreement with our data, using a filtered Gordon–Haus model for the timing jitter reduced by the energy enhancement of our solitons relative to solitons in a fiber with a constant dispersion equal to our map's path-average dispersion. We have also measured a bit-error rate of <10-9 at a distance of 15,000  km.
