On the Creation of Solitons in Amplifying Optical Fibers

Figure 9

(a) Evolution of the energies of both solitons and radiation at , calculated from Direct Scattering Transform. Initial conditions were and . Note the break in the scale. The point of creation of the second soliton is highlighted by an arrow. (b) Example of a pulse envelope taken at where the pulse consists of two solitons and radiation.
