Abstract

We show how a stable bound soliton pair (or "soliton molecule") maintains an equilibrium temporal separation during its propagation along a dispersion alternating fiber. Experimental results of a scheme utilizing this soliton molecule action to re-time a return-to-zero on-off-keyed (RZ-OOK) data stream at 10.7 Gbit/s are presented.
