Abstract

Soliton propagation in a multimode optical fiber in the presence of an intensity-dependent refractive index is investigated by means of a set of nonlinear coupled equations derived in the frame of coupled-mode theory. In particular, the conditions on modal amplitudes and modal dispersion necessary for soliton existence are derived.
