Abstract

A theory of optical pulse propagation in cascaded transmission systems that are based on the dispersion-compensating fiber technique is developed. The existence of two scales associated with fiber dispersion and system residual dispersion leads to a simple model for the averaged pulse dynamics. In the particular case of practical importance, the averaged pulse dynamics is governed by the nonlinear Schrödinger equation. The pulse transmission stability is examined.
