Paper Abstract

The initial field amplitude (alpha) 0, normalized to the amplitude of a fundamental soliton, and the ratio (Gamma) of the dispersion distance to the loss distance are successfully used to classify the areas of originating the `light' solitary waves of the first order in optical systems belonging to Landau-Ginzburg type. We analyze the model, described by the complex cubic Landau-Ginzburg equation in a reduced form, and demonstrate for the first time that the guiding-center solitons, associated usually with the interval of (alpha) 0 (epsilon) [1.0;1.5], (Gamma) >= 1, can exist even if (Gamma) <EQ 1. The application of peculiarities inherent in picosecond optical guiding- center solitons of the first order to the problem of creating a fiber network for a precise synchronization is proposed and discussed.
