Dark soliton generation and propagation using a normally dispersive, dispersion decreasing fiber

D.J.Richardson, R.P.Chamberlin, L.Dong and D.N.Payne

Abstract

The generation and propagation of bright and dark soliton pulses is an area of great scientific interest with relevance to many futuristic telecommunication and optical-processing applications. Bright solitons have been the subject of intense experimental investigation; however, the experimental study of dark soliton behaviour has been limited. This situation is in no small part due to the difficulty of generating and measuring such pulse forms [1,2,3]. (for review see Ref.[4] and references within).
