Distributed-feedback structures may provide the increased dispersion required for soliton switching when materials with increased nonlinearity become available. Over the bandwidth of the pulses used, the structure will have to appear matched to the input and output. The matching of such a distributed-feedback structure with uniform grating sections of the same periodicity preceding and following it is investigated. The matching method may find other applications.
