The impact of some higher-order effects (HOEs), namely, intrapulse Raman scattering, self-steepening, and third-order dispersion, on a chaotic pulsating soliton, solution of the quintic complex Ginzburg–Landau equation, is numerically investigated. We show that a proper combination of the three HOEs can control the pulse chaotic behavior and provide a fixed-shape solution. The region of existence of fixed-shape pulses is also presented for some range of the parameter values.
