Abstract

Short pulses propagating in long optical fibers are shown to be asymmetrically distorted as a result of a nonlinear effect that is not included in the conventional nonlinear Schrödinger equation describing nonlinear pulse propagation. This effect may be responsible for pulse asymmetries observed in recent experiments.
