Paper Abstract

The broadband and low-power optical bright soliton propagation in a line-defect photonic crystal waveguide (PCW) is obtained. The line-defect PCW is composed by polystyrene background material and Si-rods. By adjusting the PCW structure parameters, optical bright soliton in the optimized PCW structures with a bandwidth of 2.35  nm/3.61  nm and a peak power as low as 8.1  μW/35.7  μW is achieved. For a dense wavelength division multiplexing system with 0.2 nm of channel spacing in optical fiber communications, 8 and 16 channels can be supported within the 2.35-nm and 3.61-nm bandwidths. The peak power range is within the power range of the optical fiber communication criterion.
