Paper Abstract

The behaviour of solitons in optical fibres has been an area of study for some time. The interest in this rather fascinating field of nonlinear phenomena has varied from initially modest to the current interest in the possibility of a new type of data communication system . This paper will set out, in an non-mathematical way , the properties of these optical solitons . The type of soliton that will be considered is the envelope soliton, which consists of a carrier wave with a (complex) envelope that is modulated.
