We show that collision-induced frequency shifts in wavelength-division-multiplexed (WDM) soliton transmission systems are strongly suppressed with increasing dispersion management. We predict new oscillations in the residual frequency shift response, owing to the relative motion induced by the dispersion map, and demonstrate a direct correlation between these oscillations and the modified soliton-collision dynamics. Simple analytical expressions for the oscillation minima are obtained, and… CONTINUE READING
