Abstract

Saturable absorbers exhibiting complex dynamics are shown to provide efficient means for control of soliton interactions. This study, focused specifically on dynamics of vector soliton interactions, demonstrates that a soliton bunch can be efficiently compressed by attractive force generated in a saturable absorber. Effect of absorption recovery time on soliton bunching is explored by using fast and slow semiconductor and carbon nanotube absorbers.
