INTRA-CHANNEL COLLISION OF KERR LAW OPTICAL SOLITONS

By S. Konar and A. Biswas

Full Article PDF (240 KB)

Abstract:
The intra-channel collision of optical solitons, with Kerr law nonlinearity, is studied in this paper by the aid of quasi-particle theory. The perturbation terms that are considered in this paper are the nonlinear gain and saturable amplifiers along with filters. The suppression of soliton-soliton interaction, in presence of these perturbation terms, is achieved. The numerical simulations support the quasi-particle theory.
