Abstract

It is shown that solitons emerge from initial pulses of arbitrary shape and amplitude whose central frequencies are at the zero-dispersion point. The initial threshold power is substantially reduced from that required for experiments to date. The use of these solitons is thus an attractive alternative to both the linear and the nonlinear communication schemes that have been proposed to date.
