The development of the supercontinuum spectrum in the quasi-CW regime is studied analytically, numerically and experimentally. An interpretation in terms of localized periodic structures known as "Akhmediev Breathers" is proposed. Theory, numerical simulation and experiment are in excellent agreement. We also briefly consider the role of breather collisions in the presence of higher order dispersion and show that they lead to the formation of very large amplitude localized structures that may...[Show more]
