Wave breaking in nonlinear-optical fibers

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

An analytical investigation is made of the interplay between dispersion and nonlinearity in the creation of wave breaking in optical fibers. Wave breaking is found to involve two independent processes: (a) overtaking of different parts of the pulse and (b) nonlinear generation of new frequencies during overtaking. Analytical predictions for the distance of wave breaking are obtained and found to be in good agreement with numerical results.
