For any given dispersion-managed (DM) fiber system compensated by chirped fiber gratings, using the variational equations, we present an useful procedure to calculate the pulse widths and energies of all possible stationary solutions. We also show that same methodology can be extended for any desired DM fiber system with loss and periodic gain. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
