Perturbations of Dispersion-Managed Optical Solitons

By Anjan Biswas
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 48, 85-123, 2004


This paper studies the propagation of solitons through an optical fiber, with strong dispersion-management in presence of perturbation terms. The adiabatic parameter dynamics of the solitons in presence of such perturbation terms have been obtained by using the variational principle. In particular, the Gaussian and super-Gaussian pulses have been considered.
