Abstract

A technique for beat signal to soliton trains conversion based on multisoliton compression effects is presented. This technique permits the use of considerably shorter fibre lengths than all DDF based conversion schemes and permits the generation of soliton trains with repetition rates in the range 30-40 GHz a repetition rate of interest for future telecommunication use. The high quality of solitons generated is demonstrated by measurements of the individual pulse parameters and by propagation of the pulses in additional fibre spans.
