Abstract

The trapping behavior of two chirped solitons forming a bound state in a single-mode birefringent fiber is investigated on the basis of a model of coupled nonlinear Schroedinger equations. The positive initial chirp plays an important role in controlling the threshold amplitude for soliton trapping without causing excessive pulse broadening.
