Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Two cases involving soliton tunneling through a finite-length junction between two long optical fibers are considered. First, it is shown that a junction with a certain length and a properly chosen dispersion, intermediate to that of the adjacent main fibers, can give rise to efficient chirp-free pulse compression. Second, conditions for solitons to survive tunneling through a junction dominated by linear dispersive effects are investigated.
