We show that guiding filters fundamentally alter the behavior of dispersion-managed soltions by making the pulse energy nearly independent of path-average dispersion (Dˉ) in the neighborhood of Dˉ=0 . This fact enables one to design maps permitting adequate pulse energy with narrow-bandwidth, temporally broad pulses for the attainment of high spectral efficiency and reduced nonlinear penalties in wavelength-division multiplexing.
