Abstract

Polarization mode dispersion causes solitons to emit background radiation, which degrades transmission quality. It is shown theoretically and confirmed by numerical simulations that dispersion-managed solitons can trap part of that radiation into localized eigenmodes, thus yielding improvement in transmission quality compared with that of conventional solitons.
