Increased amplifier spacing in a soliton system using quantum well saturable absorbers and spectral filtering
Optics Letters, 19, (19), . (doi:10.1364/OL.19.001514).
The spacing between optical amplifiers in a long-haul soliton system may be increased to 100 km by using only passive quantum-well saturable absorbers and narrow-band filters for soliton control. After transmission over 9000 km at 10 Gbits/s, the effects of soliton-soliton interaction and Gordon-Haus jitter in the proposed system yield bit error rates of better than 10^-9.
