3.6 Gb/s optical soliton transmission is successfully demonstrated using a gain-switched 1.55 μm distributed feedback laser diode and Ti:LiNbO3 intensity modulator. An Er3 + -doped fiber amplifier and a Raman amplifier, both pumped by 1.48 μm laser diodes, are employed for achieving intense optical pulses and fiber-loss compensation, respectively. The intensity-modulation direct-detection optical receiver of a commercial F-1.6 G system is used to measure the bit-error rate.
