Abstract

Fission of optical solitons in a glass fiber induced by the stimulated Raman effect is demonstrated by a theory, simulations, and experiments. The solitons born by fission retain the amplitudes predicted by inverse-scattering calculations. For n = 2 solitons, fission occurs within a distance of 15 km for an initial pulse width of 10 psec.
