Impact of third-order dispersion on the evolution of parabolic pulses

Boscolo, Sonia and Bale, Brandon G. (2010). Impact of third-order dispersion on the evolution of parabolic pulses. IN: Nonlinear Optics and Applications IV. Eggleton, Benjamin J.; Gaeta, Alexander L. and Broderick, Neil G.R. (eds) SPIE proceedings, 7728 . SPIE.


We present a perturbation analysis that describes the effect of third-order dispersion on the similariton pulse solution of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation in a fibre gain medium. The theoretical model predicts with sufficient accuracy the pulse structural changes induced, which are observed through direct numerical simulations.
