Paper Abstract

We investigate numerically the temporal and spectral characteristics of fixed-shape pulses, resulting from pulsating, erupting and creeping soliton solutions of a generalized complex Ginzburg-Landau equation (CGLE), which includes the third-order dispersion, intrapulse Raman scattering, and self-steepening effects. In general, the resulting fixed-shape solutions are asymmetric and chirped pulses. The interaction between such fixed-shape pulses is also investigated, and we show that a stable propagation is achieved, except when the pulses have an oscillating tail.­
