Abstract

We investigate the interactions of dispersion managed (DM) solitons in a stabilized model where the stabilization is provided by coupling a lossy core to the system’s main fiber. It is found that interaction of solitons in this model is quite complex in that they can attract or repel, depending on the initial phase and initial separation of solitons. An important finding is that bound states of DM solitons exist in this model. It is also found that collision distance increases as the net average dispersion increases from normal to anomalous. In the case of D ¯ = + 0.1 , a region in the plane ( γ 0 , L ) has been identified where periodic bound states of two solitons exist.
