Abstract

We calculate the self-frequency shift experienced by a soliton in a dispersion-managed fiber that is due to the Raman effect, as well as the energy and frequency shifts that result from a collision of such solitons with different wavelengths. We find that dispersion management suppresses both types of frequency shift but does not significantly affect the energy shift that is accumulated over a large propagation distance. The latter shift may represent a potential problem for wavelength-division-multiplexed systems with several gigabits per second in a single channel.
