Effect of Dispersive Reflectivity on the Dynamics of Interacting Solitons in Dual-Core Systems with Separated Bragg Grating and Nonlinearity

Tanvir Ahmed, Javid Atai

Abstract

The interactions of in-phase and p-out-of-phase quiescent Bragg grating solitons in a dual-core system where one core has Kerr nonlinearity and other is linear and has a Bragg grating with dispersive reflectivity are systematically investigated. The effect of dispersive reflectivity on the outcomes of the interactions is analyzed. It is found that above a certain value of dispersive reflectivity solitons develop sidelobes. The presence of sidelobes has a significant effect on the outcomes of the interactions. In the absence of sidelobes, in-phase soliton-soliton interactions may result in several outcomes such as merger into a quiescent soliton, symmetric or asymmetric separation of solitons or destruction of both solitons. However, the interaction of solitons in the presence of sidelobes produces other outcomes such as repulsion of solitons or formaion of a temporary bound state followed by separation of two solitons. p-out-of-phase solitons generally repel each other. However, in the presence of sidelobes, interactions of p-out-of-phase solitons may lead to the formation of temporary bound state and subsequent generation of two separating solitons.
