Optical solitons in nonlinear directional couplers by sine–cosine function method and Bernoulli’s equation approach Academic Article uri icon


  • © 2015, Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht. This paper obtains soliton solutions to optical couplers by two methods. These are sine–cosine function method and Bernoulli’s equation approach. There are four laws that are touched upon in this paper. These are Kerr law, power law, parabolic law and dual-power law. The first integration scheme is applicable to Kerr and power laws only where bright soliton solutions are retrievable. The second tool is applicable to parabolic and dual-power laws only that leads to dark and singular solitons for these two nonlinear media.
