Abstract

Structural disorder is built in the fiber. The effect of this disorder on the propagation, i.e., the longer some pulse travels along the fiber the more strongly disorder affects it. Even weak disorder may cause essential damage to pulse integrity. This paper describes a strong effect of weak disorder in the fiber dispersion coefficient on the shedding and interaction of pulses, a problem which is crucial for progress in modern nonlinear fiber optics and related communication technology.
