We report the experimental observation of multiple dispersive waves (DWs) emitted in the anomalous dispersion region of an optical fiber from a train of dark solitons. Each DW can be associated to one dark soliton of the train, using phase-matching arguments involving higher-order dispersion and soliton velocity. For a large number of dark solitons (>10), we observe the formation of a continuum associated with the efficient emission of DWs.

Collision between a dark soliton and a linear wave in an optical fiber.
TLDR
The measured efficiency of this collision between a linear wave propagating in the anomalous dispersion region of an optical fiber and a dark soliton located in the normal dispersion area shows a strong dependency with the soliton grayness and the linear wave wavelength.
Spectral wings of the fiber supercontinuum and the dark-bright soliton interaction.

Emission of multiple resonant radiations by spatiotemporal oscillation of multimode dark pulses.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that two co-propagating waves with equal intensities and certain temporal delays can induce the formation of a train of dark solitons, with each emitting multiple resonant radiation lines, which can possibly form multiple radiation continuums based on vast amount of excited dark Solitons.
Dark solitons manipulation using optical event horizon.
TLDR
The optical event horizon can provide an effective technique to actively control the propagation properties of a dark soliton with another weak probe wave and the probe wave manipulated collisional dynamics between both dark solitons are investigated as an analogue of the combined white-hole and black-hole horizons.
Interactions of the second-order solitons with an external probe pulse in the optical event horizon
We demonstrate manipulating the interactions of a second-order soliton with a weak probe pulse under the condition of group velocity match (GVM) and group velocity mismatch (GVMM). During these
Mutual manipulation between a dark soliton and a probe wave for the gray-dark solitonic well
We propose an approach to actively control the formation of the dark solitonic well by adjusting the input properties of both the dark solitons and probe waves under the fiber-optical analog of the
Generation of tunable ultra-short pulse sequences in a quasi-discrete spectral supercontinuum by dark solitons.
TLDR
Based on the combined effect of group-velocity dispersion and the initial time delay between dual pumps, the spectral width of narrow-band sources behaves in such a similar manner to the temporal width of ultra-short pulses that they are different in two normal dispersion regions.
Optical event horizon-based complete transformation and control of dark solitons.
TLDR
To the best of the knowledge, the optical event horizon effect is demonstrated for the first time to be capable of inducing a reversible conversion between a black soliton and a gray one.

We demonstrate that the dark soliton trains in optical fibers with a zero of the group-velocity dispersion can generate broad spectral distribution (continuum) associated with the resonant dispersive

TLDR
Good agreement is found between theory and both temporal and spectral measurements, which is characteristic of dark solitons on a chirped background pulse.
Nonlinear pulse propagation in the neighborhood of the zero-dispersion wavelength of monomode optical fibers.
TLDR
Nonlinear pulse propagation is investigated in the neighborhood of the zero-dispersion wavelength in monomode fibers and it is found that the pulses break apart if lambda - lambda(0) is sufficiently small, owing to the third-order dispersion.

Weak and strong interactions between dark solitons and dispersive waves.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that two dark solitons and a dispersive wave bouncing in between them create a solitonic cavity with convex "mirrors," unlike the concave "mirror" in the case of brightsolitons.

Dispersive wave emission from wave breaking.
TLDR
Pulses undergoing wave breaking in nonlinear weakly dispersive fibers radiate, owing to phase-matching (assisted by higher-order dispersion) of linear dispersive waves with the shock-wave front, to perfectly explain the radiation observed recently from pulses propagating in the normal dispersion regime.

Third-order dispersion has a detrimental effect on dark solitons, leading to resonant generation of growing soliton tails and soliton decay. This effect is shown to be much stronger than that for
