Abstract

We report the experimental observation of a weak dispersive wave trapped within a cage formed by two solitons in an optical fiber. We show that the dispersive wave bouncing is accompanied by a back-and-forth wavelength conversion of the probe to an idler wave. Additionally, we observed the destruction of the soliton cage when the dispersive wave power is increased, leading to the collision of the solitons.
