Abstract

A detailed experimental investigation about the propagation of a fundamental soliton interacting with a weak dispersive pulse at an optical event horizon is presented. The results show that the soliton is either redshifted or blueshifted depending on the wavelength of the dispersive pulse. As a consequence of such a wavelength shift, the soliton is either stretched or compressed. The results thus demonstrate the possibility of controlling the propagation of an intense optical pulse by means of a less powerful pulse.
