Abstract

We study interaction-induced timing jitter in single-channel dispersion-managed return-to-zero ttransmission systems operating at high map strengths. An equation for the frequency and timing shifts of two interacting pulses is derived by a variational approach. The interaction can be of either an attractive or a repulsive character, and we show that the resultant timing jitter can be reduced by proper design of the dispersion map.
