Paper Abstract

The polarization dynamics of vector solitons are studied in an elliptically low birefringent optical fiber for the first time within the framework of a model described by a system of coupled nonlinear Schro¨dinger equations with all the oscillating terms in the coupling between two copropagating modes. A condition for their stability has been obtained. Our analysis is based upon Hamiltonian perturbation theory.
