Abstract
A dispersion-managed soliton transmission using an unsymmetric dispersion map in a lumped amplifier system is investigated. For a soliton dispersion management system with equal-length segments of both normal and anomalous dispersion fibers, it is shown that the initial fiber length of the unsymmetric dispersion map must be shorter than that of the symmetric map to attain a chirp-free pulse at the beginning of a dispersion management unit cell. By properly adjusting the initial fiber length of the unsymmetric dispersion map, the dispersive wave is reduced and the allowed transmission distance can be increased when compared to the symmetric map system with optimum prechirping.
