Dissipative Solitons and Antisolitons

Ankiewicz, Adrian; Devine, Natasha; Akhmediev, Nail; Soto-Crespo, Jose M

Description

Using the method of moments for dissipative optical solitons, we show that there are two disjoint sets of fixed points. These correspond to stationary solitons of the complex cubic-quintic Ginzburg-Landau equation with concave and convex phase profiles respectively. Numerical simulations confirm the predictions of the method of moments for the existence of two types of solutions which we call solitons and antisolitons. Their characteristics are distinctly different.
