Abstract:

In this talk possibilities to transmit higher-order solitons using parallel separate transmitters are examined. Each transmitter has to deal with single first order solitons only, which are then merged using linear couplers. The impact of linear superposition of solitons on nonlinear Fourier-spectra is investigated and an exemplary use-case is proposed.
