Abstract

We show that bright temporal solitonlike pulses can propagate in AlGaAs waveguides excited in the half-band-gap spectral regime. The use of an antiresonant reflecting optical waveguide permits the dispersion of the waveguide to be controlled so that a mode with anomalous dispersion can propagate.
