abstract

  • We derive an expression for the timing jitter of a soliton owing to amplifier noise in dispersion-managed fiber systems. We show that the timing jitter is a function of the pulse width as well as of the chirp at the amplifier location and that it can be minimized by a proper choice of the amplifier position relative to the dispersion map.
