Abstract

We propose a wavelength-division multiplexing system in which transmission of solitons is stabilized by fixed- or sliding-frequency notch filters (a soliton rail), providing channel isolation. We demonstrate analytically and numerically that a soliton trapped in a channel between two notches is very robust. We also predict an optimum ratio between the channel separation and the soliton’s spectral width. The effects of interchannel collisions are considered, and it is demonstrated that these effects can be largely eliminated by notch filters, which require a compensatory gain that is comparable with the basic gain balancing the fiber loss.
