We show that under the combined effects of stimulated Raman scattering and loss, the pump and Stokes waves can form a bright–dark solitary wave pair. Our analysis takes into account dispersive and walk-off effects as processes of self-phase modulation and cross-phase modulation. The physical origin of this formation is discussed.
