A trick of the light: Discovering Dark-Bright and Anti-Dark-Bright Solitons

A fiber laser is an excellent experimental testbed for studying optical solitons.

Light has many incredible properties. They range from its strange duality of behaviour, acting either as a wave or a particle, to demonstrating incredible nonlinear effects that can be exploited with laser and optical technologies. One such property is the ability of light waves to form solitons when they pass through materials like optical fibres. Solitons, or solitary waves, occur […]
