Abstract

We examine the properties of dispersion-managed (DM) solitons in fiber lines with dispersion-compensation period L much shorter than amplification distance Za . DM solitons in systems with short-scale dispersion compensation have reduced power compared with DM solitons in previously studied regimes with L≥Za power (for the same local and average dispersion and the same pulse width). As a result, chirped DM soliton transmission with reasonably low power can be realized with shorter pulses when DM solitons in systems with large L/Za ratios have energies that are too high to be used in practice.
