Partially Coherent Solitons of Variable Shape in a Slow Kerr-Like Medium: Exact Solutions

Ankiewicz, Adrian; Akhmediev, Nail; Krolikowski, Wieslaw


We carry out a theoretical investigation of the properties of partially coherent solitons for media which have a slow Kerr-like nonlinearity. We find exact solutions of the Nth-order Manakov equations in a general form. These describe partially coherent solitons (PCSs) and their collisions. In fact, the exact solutions allow us to analyze important properties of PCSs such as stationary profiles of the spatial beams and effects resulting from their collisions. In particular, we find,...[Show more]
