Abstract

Periodic breathing of pulse width owing to strong dispersion management leads to significant overlap between adjacent pulses in long-distance fiber-optic transmissions. A striking result is that beyond a critical degree of overlap the interaction forces are no longer increased and are even reduced as the overlap is enhanced.

Collision distance versus degree of overlap R for periodic breathing pulses (solid curve). The path-average GVD [in ps/nm km] is shown next to the squares on the solid curve for different R. In comparison, the path-average GVD at the diamonds on the dashed curve is divided by 2 compared with the values at the squares.

Same as in Fig. 2, for average powers Pave=-5.9 dBm (dashed–dotted curve), Pave=-2.9 dBm (solid curve), and Pave=0.1 dBm (dashed curve). Triangle (asterisk), average dispersion decreased (increased) from a fixed point on the solid curve.
