Abstract

The properties of elliptically polarized solitary waves in isotropic optical fibers are investigated. Two families of polarized solitary pulses are identified, but only one of them is shown to be stable. These pulses are characterized by a fixed polarization pattern that rotates at a constant rate as the pulse propagates down the fiber. The evolution of the polarization of these pulses is important for the operation of short-pulse fiber lasers and other nonlinear devices.
