Abstract

It was shown that one can improve transmission performance in ultra-long-haul wavelength-division-multiplexed (WDM) systems by matching the input pulsewidth to the path-averaged dispersion (PAD) in the line. Wider pulses should be used for higher values of PAD, and vice versa. It was also noted that this pulsewidth selection is only effective in the dispersion-managed soliton (DMS) propagation regime but not in the chirped return-to-zero (CRZ) regime.
