Akhmediev Breather dynamics and the nonlinear modulation instability spectrum

Genty, Goery; Dias, F; Kibler, Bertrand; Akhmediev, Nail; Dudley, John M


We consider various aspects of supercontinuum generation in the quasi-CW regime through analysis, numerical simulations and experiments. A new interpretation of certain features of the developing spectrum in terms of localized periodic structures known as "Akhmediev Breathers" is proposed. We also briefly consider the role of breather collisions and turbulence in the presence of higher order dispersion and show that they lead to the formation of very large amplitude localized structures that...[Show more]
