Abstract
A novel approach for the stabilization of soliton sequences in fibers with an amplification and a saturable absorption is put forward. The instability related with a merge of solitons is suppressed by their frequency chirp due to nonlinear refractive index. Weak noise pulses connected with an amplified spontaneous emission are suppressed by a saturable absorption. Powerful solitons with different amplitudes are equalized by negative feedback, which is due to the combined action of a nonlinear refractive index inducing a frequency chirp of solitons and of a frequency dispersion of a gain-loss. The application of obtained results on the stabilization of soliton sequences to optical communications and information processing is discussed.
