Abstract

We study the propagation of Gaussian-shaped pulses in grating-compensated dispersion-managed systems with group delay ripples (GDR). We show that the intersymbol interference caused by the GDR in gratings can be substantially reduced by nonlinear optical loop mirrors and the 40-Gb/s system performance can achieve transoceanic transmission in the presence of amplifier noise and random variations in ripple period of the gratings along the transmission line.
