Abstract

Detailed numerical and experimental studies of propagation of 110 fs laser pulses at 800 nm in small-core photonic crystal fibers ( γ 100 W 1 km 1 ) reveal that pulse breakup occurs in two distinct regimes defined by the input power. At low peak power (soliton order N 7 ) higher-order soliton fission occurs: individual solitons being ejected from the input pulse one after the other and are arranged in wavelength and in time by peak power. At higher levels of peak power ( N > 8 ) , pulse breakup results in ejection of bound soliton pairs and the formation of single solitons that collide during propagation.
