Abstract

We provide a full theoretical understanding of the recent observations of excitation of Raman two-peak states in solid-core photonic crystal fibers. Based on a “gravity-like” potential approach we derive simple equations for the “magic” peak power ratio and the temporal separation between pulses forming these two-peak states. We develop a model to calculate the magic input power of the input pulse around which the phenomenon can be observed. We also predict the existence of exotic multipeak states that strongly violate the perturbative pulse splitting law, and we study their stability and excitation conditions.

  12. Equation has to be interpreted as an eigen problem for f(ξ) and q, with b=32τRq2/15 imposed by the physics of RSFS. The boundary conditions that one has to impose to find the soliton solutions of Eq. by using the shooting method are as follows: (i) the function values at the leading edge boundary ξ1 and the trailing edge boundary ξ2 are vanishing: f(ξ1)=f(ξ2)=0; (ii) the first-order derivative at the trailing edge boundary ξ2 is vanishing: fξ(ξ2)=0. The numerical solution may shift the position of the maximum slightly with respect to ξ=0 in order to satisfy the above conditions, due to the presence of the oscillating and slowly decaying Airy tail on the leading edge of the soliton.
