Abstract

Pulses launched with their central wavelength in the region of the minimum-dispersion wavelength of a single-mode optical fiber exhibit a distinct spectral splitting due to the nonlinearity. As a solitary wave evolves, the corresponding central wavelength of this component frequency downshifts while the dispersive wave is upshifted, in qualitative agreement with theoretical prediction.
