Bright and dark solitons in the normal dispersion regime of inhomogeneous optical fibers. (English) Zbl 1204.78025
Summary: We investigate a nonlinear Schrödinger equation with varying dispersion, nonlinearity and loss for the propagation of ultra-short optical pulses in the normal dispersion regime of optical fibers. By virtue of the modified Hirota’s method and symbolic computation, the analytic two-soliton solution is explicitly obtained. Both the bright and dark solitons are observed in the normal dispersion regime of optical fibers with dispersion management. An asymptotic analysis to verify the elastic collision between solitons is performed and the stability of the soliton solutions is investigated. Besides, a new bright solitonic generator for generating high-power and narrow bandwidth pulses is advised. Furthermore, possible applicable soliton control techniques which might be used for the design of optical switch and dispersion-managed systems are proposed.
