Picosecond soliton control using nonlinear optical loop mirrors

Smith, N J and Doran, Nick (1994). Picosecond soliton control using nonlinear optical loop mirrors. IN: IEE Colloquium on Optical Solitons: Principles and Applications. Technical Digest . London, UK: IEE.


We show that by inserting nonlinear optical loop mirrors into an optical fibre transmission line, that 1.5 ps solitons may be transmitted over at least 750 km, with amplifiers spaced at 15 km intervals.
