I model the nonlinear fiber laser using an expanded Ginzburg-Landau equation (GLE) which includes the self-steepening (SS) and intrapulse Raman scattering (IRS) effects. I show that above a minimum value of the Raman effect, it is possible to find two chirped solitary pulses for the laser system. The smaller chirped solitary wave corresponds to the dispersion-managed (DM) regime whereas the larger chirped solitary wave corresponds to the so-called similariton regime.
