Abstract

We find that in a dispersion-managed fiber, in which the strength of the dispersion management is above some threshold, solitons can exist with normal average dispersion. When the normal average dispersion is below some limiting value there exist two soliton solutions with the same pulse duration and different pulse energies. When the normal average dispersion is above this limiting value, no soliton exists. Both higher-energy and lower-energy solitons are dynamically stable in the parameter range that we considered.
