An optical soliton pulse may be used as a control signal in nonlinear optical loop mirror demultiplexers in order to reduce timing-jitter noise and crosstalk. A mathematical model for calculating the width of the soliton switching window and optimizing critical parameters such as walk-off time and pulse width has been presented, and its accuracy is verified by solving the nonlinear Schrodinger equation.
