Abstract

It is shown numerically that the amplification and accumulation of noise and other dispersive waves in bandwidth-limited soliton transmission can be suppressed by the use of nonlinear amplifying loop mirrors that selectively amplify solitons. This scheme offers an alternative possibility for achieving stable ultralong-distance optical soliton transmission.
