Soliton transmission in optical fibers with loss and saturable nonlinearity

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

Optical solitons propagating in media exhibiting saturable nonlinearity offer advantages over Kerr-medium solitons for transmission over large distances through optical fibers with loss. Soliton pulses in saturable media offer greater energy for a given peak power, and upper-branch solitons decrease in width with distance traveled. These properties result in pulses that remain distinct and detectable for greater distances than Kerr-medium solitons do with the same peak power.
