Abstract : Mollenauer have experimentally demonstrated the transmission of optical solitons in a single mode fiber over large distance up to 10000 km. one of the limitations to the transmission rate in the soliton regime of propagation is an interaction between optical pulses. Besides the well studied short-range Kerr-like interaction, Smith and Mollenauer experimentally discovered the interaction of the two periodic trains of 55-ps solitons shifted in time on several dozens of soliton widths for propagation distance of 3000 km.
