Abstract: We analyse the propagation of optical solitons in a transmission system with lumped Butterworth or photorefractive fiber grating filters. The simulations show that fixed-frequency filters with a properly shaped frequency profile effectively suppress both Gordon-Haus time jitter and the soliton interactions, in analogy with sliding-frequency Fabry-Perot etalons.
