If the fiber dispersion of soliton transmission line is optimized, the amplifiers output power becomes almost constant for different amplifier spacing and pulse width. Numerical simulations indicate the optimal dispersion can be determined, as the ratio of amplifier spacing to dispersion length is about 0. 8 for uniform dispersion line.
