Abstract

The optical soliton transmission system has great potential for providing high speed and long distance communication and field experiments on this system have been reported using installed fiber optical networks [1][2]. It will be possible to upgrade the already installed optical fiber networks by employing high bit-rate soliton transmission. However, polarization mode dispersion (PMD) is a serious problem [3] and could prove to be a major factor limiting high bit rate transmission systems. It was reported that self-Trapping prevents a soliton pulse from splitting as long as PMD is small[4], but when the bit rate exceeds 40 Gbit/s there is a reduction in the PMD that can be allowed without the pulse splitting, and so the PMD effect cannot be disregarded.
