Abstract

I show with numerical simulations that higher-order sliding filters, especially super-Gaussian filters, can produce dramatic power enhancement of optical solitons, similar to that of dispersion-managed solitons. This approach should allow smaller timing jitter without sacrificing the signal-to-noise ratio.
