Abstract

The dynamic propagation of the finite-energy Airy pulse (FEAP) is studied numerically in the presence of higher-order effects, including Raman scattering, self-steepening (SS), and third-order dispersion (TOD). It is shown that the Raman-induced frequency shift (RIFS) of a FEAP can be tailored by varying the truncation coefficient of the FEAP. In particular, the combined effects of Raman scattering and SS (or TOD) on the nonlinear propagation of a FEAP are identified. It is found that both TOD and SS effects tend to slow down the RIFS during the nonlinear propagation of a FEAP. In addition, the simultaneous contributions of Raman, TOD, and SS effects to the nonlinear propagation of FEAP are further discussed. Compared to the conventional symmetric pulses, such as Sech pulses, the FEAP can generate a broadening spectrum that is extended toward the blue side, in addition to the conventional red-shifted components. These results demonstrate that the FEAP can be used for supercontinuum generation and broadband sources.
