Few-cycle optical solitary waves in nonlinear dispersive media

Amiranashvili, S; Bandelow, U.; Akhmediev, Nail


We study the propagation of few-cycle optical solitons in nonlinear media with an anomalous, but otherwise arbitrary, dispersion and a cubic nonlinearity. Our approach does not derive from the slowly varying envelope approximation. The optical field is derived directly from Maxwell's equations under the assumption that generation of the third harmonic is a nonresonant process or at least cannot destroy the pulse prior to inevitable linear damping. The solitary wave solutions are obtained...[Show more]
