Abstract

We theoretically demonstrate what is a new method for efficient launching of in-gap solitons in fiber Bragg gratings. The method is based on generating a soliton outside the grating bandgap. Then, the soliton is adiabatically coupled into the bandgap by using its particlelike behavior. We compare our method to a previously published launching scheme that is based on generating the soliton directly within the grating bandgap. When using low-intensity incident pulses, the transmission efficiency of our method is three times higher than that of the previously published scheme.
