Abstract

A numerical analysis of soliton propagation in a dispersion-compensated transmission system reveals the presence of a small dispersive-wave contribution to the propagating soliton that increases dramatically whenever the input soliton energy is detuned from its optimal value. A straightforward consequence of the dispersive-wave emission is an unexpectedly strong contribution to the long-range soliton–soliton interaction. We show that the combination of long- and short-range interactions induces soliton timing jitter that grows larger than that which arises from the Gordon–Haus effect.
