Optical solitons in nonlinear directional couplers with G′/G-expansion scheme Academic Article uri icon


  • © 2015 World Scientific Publishing Company. This paper obtains soliton solutions in optical couplers. The governing equation is solved by the aid of G'/G-expansion scheme. There are four types of nonlinear media that are taken into consideration. These are Kerr law, power law, parabolic law, and dual-power law. There are two kinds optical couplers studied in this paper. They are twin-core couplers and multiple-core couplers, where coupling with nearest neighbors as well as coupling with all neighbors are considered. Dark and singular soliton solutions are retrieved. These soliton solutions come with constraint conditions that must hold for the solitons to exist.
