Embedded solitons: four-frequency radiation, front propagation and radiation inhibition. (English)
Phys. Scr. 67, No. 4, 314-324 (2003).
Summary: Optical solitons which remain radiationless in spite of having wavenumbers immersed in the spectrum of linear waves are rather unusual. This article shows that moving solitons of this type are solutions of an extended NLS equation with third and fourth-order dispersion, and a quintic nonlinearity. The mechanism which prevents the emission of radiation in these solitons is presented. The radiation emitted when these solitons are perturbed is also studied. This radiation exhibits four propagating fronts, and the velocities of these fronts are calculated and explained.
