Abstract

The temporal envelope profile and the phase of a steady-state pulse propagating through a resonant medium in the presence of nonresonant nonlinearity are derived. The formation of solitonlike pulses takes place as a result of the balance of the self-phase modulation generated by nonresonant nonlinearity and the nonlinear resonant group-velocity dispersion induced by the self-induced-transparency effect in a resonant medium. Self-phase-modulation action leads to distortion of the pulse when its power and inverse duration exceed the critical values Pcr and τ cr - 1. We show the destructive role of self-phase modulation in the case of self-induced-transparency pulse generation in a laser with erbium-doped fiber as an intracavity coherent absorber.
