Analytic solution for soliton propagation in a nonlinear saturable medium. Academic Article uri icon


  • Soliton propagation in a saturable self-focusing nonlinear medium is discussed. By using an appropriate model for saturation it has been possible to obtain an exact solution of the corresponding nonlinear Schr√∂dinger equation. The properties of the solution are discussed. ¬© 1992 Optical Society of America.
