Abstract

We theoretically analyze nonlinear interactions between chirped solitons in dispersion-managed wavelength-division-multiplexing (WDM) systems. We employ the perturbation method to evaluate frequency and chirp shifts caused by collisions among different WDM channels. It is shown that a chirped soliton suffers less frequency shift and time displacement than an ideal soliton, indicating its potential applicability for WDM systems.
