Abstract : The transmission of optical solitons over transoceanic distances by means of dispersion shifted fibers and periodic all-optical amplification by erbium doped fibers has been recently demonstrated. Soliton transmission in the fiber link is described by the averaged nonlinear Schrodinger (NLS) equation. Here delta is the excess amplifier gain, and Beta(Beta < 0) is the mean value of the gain dispersion. Note that Beta may be controlled by inserting Fabry-Perot filters after each amplifier. Based on the dynamics of single solitons in the perturbed eq.(1), Kodama and Hasegawa have predicted the suppression of the Gordon-Haus effect which has been recently confirmed experimentally.
