By a proper design of the frequency-dependent gain characteristic of optical amplifiers, the parameters (amplitude η and velocity κ) of optical solitons in fibers can be made to approach a desired fixed point in κη space. The method is effective in controlling the random walk of solitons caused either by initial jitter and/or by amplifier noise (the Gordon–Haus effect) and in overcoming the bit-rate limitation that they provide.

  3. For a choice of ω0 not at the peak of the gain curve, ∂g/∂ω ≠ 0. In this case the stable sink in Fig. 1 appears at a point with κ ≠ 0. However, this result is incompatible with the assumption of slowly varying gain curve.
