L1 adaptive control for optical soliton propagation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper presents the application of an L1 adaptive control architecture to the problem of active dispersion management for propagation of Gaussian-shaped solitons along uncertain optical fibers. The derivations in the paper are based on a reduced variational model for optical soliton propagation. Simulation results demonstrate the benefits of the proposed closed-loop adaptive approach over existing passive dispersion management techniques.
