Abstract

We present an optimized split-step method for solving nonlinear coupled-mode equations that model wave propagation in nonlinear fiber Bragg gratings. By separately controlling the spatial and the temporal step size of the solution, we could significantly decrease the run time duration without significantly affecting the result accuracy. The accuracy of the method and the dependence of the error on the algorithm parameters are studied in several examples. Physical considerations are given to determine the required resolution.
