Abstract

In soliton-based transmission systems using wavelength division multiplexing, the collisions among solitons temporarily induce spectrum deformation through nonlinear interactions. As a result, wavelength demultiplexing using wavelength separations may lead to an alteration of soliton parameters and an ultimate transmission error. To address this problem, the effects of demultiplexing during the collision of N solitons are examined. Several methods to reduce these effects by introducing an additional loss are discussed.
