We present three novel pulsating solutions of the cubic-quintic complex Ginzburg-Landau equation. They describe some complicated pulsating behavior of solitons in dissipative systems. We study their main features and the regions of parameter space where they exist.

We observe polarization-locked vector solitons in a mode-locked fiber laser. Temporal vector solitons have components along both birefringent axes. Despite different phase velocities due to linear birefringence, the relative phase of the components is locked at 6p͞2. The value of 6p͞2 and component magnitudes agree with a simple analysis of the Kerr… (More)

We show, numerically, that coupled soliton pairs in nonlinear dissipative systems modeled by the cubic-quintic complex Ginzburg-Landau equation can exist in various forms. They can be stationary, or they can pulsate periodically, quasiperiodically, or chaotically, as is the case for single solitons. In particular, we have found various types of vibrating… (More)

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… (More)

This paper reviews the latest advances in the area of multi-soliton complexes (MSCs). We present exact analytical solutions of coupled nonlinear Schrr odinger equations, which describe multi-soliton complexes and their interactions on top of a background in media with self-focusing or self-defocusing Kerr-like nonlinearities. We p r e s e n t n umerical… (More)

Numerical simulations of the onset phase of continuous wave supercontinuum generation from modulation instability show that the structure of the field as it develops can be interpreted in terms of the properties of Akhmediev Breathers. Numerical and analytical results are compared with experimental measurements of spectral broadening in photonic crystal… (More)

The parabolic equation (nonlinear Schrödinger equation) that appears in problems of stationary nonlinear beam propagation (self-focusing) is reconsidered. It is shown that an additional term, which involves changes of the propagation constant along the propagation direction, should be taken into account. The physical consequences of this departure from the… (More)

The nonlinear Schrödinger equation (NLSE) is a central model of nonlinear science, applying to hydrodynamics, plasma physics, molecular biology and optics. The NLSE admits only few elementary analytic solutions, but one in particular describing a localized soliton on a finite background is of intense current interest in the context of understanding the… (More)

A method is proposed for finding exact solutions of the nonlinear Schr~dinger equation. It uses an ansatz in which the real and imaginary parts of the unknown function are connected by a linear relation with coefficients that depend only on the time. The method consists of constructing a system of ordinary differential equations whose solutions determine… (More)

Rare events of extremely high optical intensity are experimentally recorded at the output of a mode-locked fiber laser that operates in a strongly dissipative regime of chaotic multiple-pulse generation. The probability distribution of these intensity fluctuations, which highly depend on the cavity parameters, features a long-tailed distribution. Recorded… (More)
