Abstract
In this paper we examine the dynamics of a pulse in fibers with periodic dispersion on the basis of the variational approach. Using this approach a set of two coupled differential equations for the evolution ofthe pulse width and chirp is obtained and numerically solved. We consider two different symmetric dispersion maps. The main difference is found to be on the dependence ofthe pulse energy on the map strength. It is shown that a dispersion —managed (DM) soliton can be supported in an optical fiber even when the average dispersion is in the normal regime. Our results show that the variational approach can be a useful and effective analytical method for optimization of soliton transmission systems with variable dispersion.
