Abstract

We present what is believed to be the first experimental evidence showing the breakup of a chirped N-soliton pulse into an ordered train of fundamental solitons, as predicted by theory. We also present numerical experiments that confirm this phenomenon. Implications for optical communications systems that use chirped pulses are discussed.
