Paper Abstract

The interaction of both scalar and counter-rotating polarized steady state pulses (SSP) is studied numerically for a medium characterized by nonlinear susceptibilities of the third and the fifth order (a cubic-quintic medium with χ3> 0, χ5 < 0 ). The collision of two plateau-shaped solitons proved to be essentially inelastic: a number of secondary solitary waves elliptically polarized arise as a result of interaction of steady-state pulses.
