Paper Abstract

A method for the self-action analysis of wide-spectral extremely short light pulses (ESLP) in fibers is presented. The method takes into account the dispersion of linear and cubic nonlinear susceptibilities in the transparency range of the media. The density matrix formalism was used to obtain material equations describing the ESLP self-action in fused silica. Light pulses with a duration about several light-wave oscillations are shown to be compressed in the nonlinear medium.
