Abstract

The propagation of the soliton pattern through optical fiber with weakly disordered dispersion coefficient is considered. Solitons perturbed by this disorder radiate and, as a consequence, decay. The average radiation profile is found. Emergence of a long-range intrachannel interaction between the solitons (mediated by this radiation) is reported. We show that soliton in a multisoliton pattern experiences a random jitter: intersoliton separation is zero mean Gaussian random field. Fluctuations of this separation are estimated by [Formula presented] where D measures the disorder strength, z is the propagation distance, and [Formula presented] stands for the transmission rate (number of solitons per unit length of the fiber). Direct numerical simulations are used to validate theoretical predictions for single soliton decay and two-soliton interaction. Relevance of these results to fiber optics communication technology is discussed.
