Inelastic Collision of Optical Solitons

Elham Barati, S. Batebi and H. Rahimpour Soleimani

In this research, we study a nonsimultaneous three-soliton collision in the presence of third-order dispersion in WDM systems. The interaction between solitons may be viewed as an inelastic collision in which energy is lost to continuous radiation owing to nonzero third-order dispersion. We develop a perturbation theory with two small parameters; the third order dispersion coefficient d3 andthe reciprocal of the interchannel frequency difference, 1/β. In the leading order the amplitude of the emitted radiation after each collision is proportional to d32. In addition, the only other effects up to the combined third order of the perturbation theory are phase changes and position shifts of the solitons. It has been shown that after each collision the rate of emitted energy is the same.
