In an array of nonlinear waveguides, a giant compression of the input beam can be achieved by exciting a rogue wave. Input field almost homogeneously distributed over hundreds of waveguides concentrates practically all the energy into a single waveguide at the output plane of the structure. We determine the required input profile of the electric field to… (More)
Dissipative solitons form a new paradigm for the investigation of phenomena involving stable structures in nonlinear systems far from equilibrium. Basic principles can be applied to a wide range of phenomena in science. Recent results involving solitons and soliton complexes of the complex cubic-quintic Ginzburg–Landau equation are presented.
We present a study of exploding soliton and front solutions of the complex cubic–quintic Ginzburg–Landau (CGLE) equation. We show that exploding fronts occur in a region of the parameter space close to that where exploding solitons exist. Explosions occur when eigenvalues in the linear stability analysis for the ground-state stationary solitons have… (More)
We report the discovery of a quantization of the separation between phase-locked soliton pairs that is related to the radiation waves known as Kelly sidebands, in a passively mode-locked fiber ring laser. Our numerical simulations that predict this phenomenon have been confirmed by our experimental results.
