A dissipative soliton in an amplifier with a Bragg grating is numerically investigated by direct simulation of Maxwell–Bloch equations. The result of the simulation indicates that a solitary wave can exist in such a medium. However, the pulse shape of the dissipative soliton is asymmetrical because of the gain saturation effect. This gain saturation effect results from the high power of the ultrashort dissipative soliton. The influence of amplifier gain on the solitary wave is also investigated.
