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 Schrdinger equation. The properties of the solution are discussed. 1992 Optical Society of America.
