A comparison between lumped and distributed filter models in wavelength-division multiplexed soliton systems

Abstract

The effects of lumped and distributed filtering on soliton interactions are considered in a dispersion-managed transmission link when the dispersion steps approximate the lossramplification profile. A detailed comparison of the collision-induced timing shifts and corresponding timing jitter for both lumped and distributed filtering models is carried out… (More)
