We introduce a new, to the best of our knowledge, type of band-limited optical pulse—soliton-sinc tailored to the nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equation. The idea behind the soliton-sinc pulse is to combine, even if approximately, a property of a fundamental soliton to propagate without distortions in nonlinear systems governed by the NLS equation with a compact band-limited spectrum of a Nyquist pulse. Though the shape preserving propagation feature is not exact, such soliton-sinc pulses are more robust against nonlinear signal distortions compared to a Nyquist pulse.
