Discrete optical solitons in frequency space and trains of short pulses in a Raman medium

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We report families of spectrally localized solutions of the coupled equations describing the interaction of multiple Raman side-bands. We interpret these solutions as discrete optical solitons in frequency space. Associated time-domain patterns correspond to either weakly modulated wave trains or trains of ultrashort pulses. Using analytical and numerical methods, we study how the duration and stability of the pulse trains can be controlled by the system parameters.
