Abstract

We study the interaction between two Bragg solitons in the vicinity of a defect inside a fiber Bragg grating. A soliton that is trapped in the defect can be released by launching a second soliton. The effect can be used to obtain an all-optical memory that is not strongly sensitive to the phase and the timing arrival of the solitons.
