Paper Abstract

A mechanism of creating a Newton's cradle (NC) in the form of a chain of solitons is proposed for understanding fission of higher-order soliton in optical fibers caused by higher-order dispersion. After the transformation of the initial Nsoliton into a chain of fundamental quasi-solitons, the tallest one travels along the chain through elastic collisions with other solitons, and then escapes, while the other solitons remain in a bound state. Multiple releases of solitons take place if N is sufficiently large. The NC effect is robust against inclusion of the Raman and self-steepening terms.
