  • Nonlinear fibers, pulse propagation, pulse manipulation, controlling light by light, solitons, Raman scattering




We prove theoretically, that the evolution of optical solitons can be dramatically influenced in the course of nonlinear interaction with much smaller group velocity matched pulses. Even weak pump pulses can be used to control the solitons, e.g., to compensate their degradation caused by Raman-scattering.
