Bandwidth-limited filtering has been proven to overcome certain limitations in soliton transmission systems. We propose super-Gaussian filters instead of Butterworth filter response obtained with conventionally used Fabry–Perot étalons as a method to improve soliton stability and reduce dispersion degradation and theoretically demonstrate their practical implementation in the form of holographic fiber gratings.
