Abstract

An analytic theory is presented that demonstrates that noise-induced amplitude and quadratic chirp jitter in a dispersion-managed soliton system can impose a fundamental transmission limit. Using a variational method, we show that the nonlinear amplitude and chirp dynamics are well approximated by a two-dimensional random-walk process.
