Paper Abstract

Quantum phase fluctuations may be amplified into large, sudden phase shifts in the Stokes field, which subsequently give rise to solitons in the pump intensity. Ensemble simulations indicate that increased dissipation due to collisional dephasing within the medium significantly increases the frequency of soliton generation. The statistical distribution of soliton heights and positions is described.
