The authors discuss the performance of a low-timing-jitter, diode-driven, Nd:YLF pumped 5ps. 30-40GHz soliton source based on beat-signal conversion in a dispersion-decreasing fibre. In addition. the first experimental demonstration is reported of long-distance (205km) propagation of such pulse streams in an amplified transmission line incorporating three amplifiers at 50km amplifier spacing.
