Abstract
Adiabatically perturbed picosecond solitons are considered as the lock-on signal carriers being distributed through an optical fiber-sync network. Interferometric technique of measuring time intervals with the help of train-average field strength correlation functions to a subpicosecond accuracy is developed in the event of arriving the optical soliton-like pulses at a high repetition rate. Such an advantage of this technique as the ability of operating on the trains of low-power picosecond optical pulses, in particular adiabatically perturbed picosecond solitons in single-mode fibers, is revealed. Results of trial experiments with the mock-up, implemented as optical part of the sync network for a short base radiointerferometer, are present.
