We report the cancellation of the soliton self-frequency shift in nonlinear optical fibers. A soliton which interacts with a group velocity matched low intensity dispersive pump pulse, experiences a continuous blue-shift in frequency, which counteracts the soliton selffrequency shift due to Raman scattering. The soliton self-frequency shift can be fully compensated by a suitably prepared dispersive wave.We quantify this kind of soliton-dispersive wave interaction by an adiabatic approach and demonstrate that the compensation is stable in agreement with numerical simulations.
