Abstract

The propagation of second-order average solitons in fiber loop with lumped amplifiers over several soliton periods is demonstrated experimentally and numerically for the first time to our knowledge. The numerical model gives the effect of the amplifier noise on the soliton stability, and the results agree well with the observations.
