Abstract

A technique of Raman compensation for a two-channel soliton-based fiber communication system is introduced. By fixing the wavelength spacing between two channels, one can calculate the pumping wavelength and intensity in such a way that balance between loss and gain is reached for each channel. In this computation the Raman conversion between two channels plays an important role in simultaneous compensation for both channels.
