Numerical study of the fundamental fiber soliton propagation

H.E. Ibarra-Villalón, O. Pottiez, A. Gómez-Vieyra, Y. E. Bracamontes-Rodriguez, J. P. Lauterio-Cruz


This work presents a numerical approach to understand the self-regeneration mechanism of the fundamental soliton propagation driven by the nonlinear Schr\"odinger equation in the nonlinear fiber formalism. This approach shows that the interplay between dispersion and nonlinearity results in a compensation effect in the phase and the instantaneous frequency representation of the pulse envelope. For a better understanding of this compensation process, 3D mapping propagation graphs are presented.
