Anderson localisation and optical-event horizons in rogue-soliton generation | BibSonomy


We show that the true origin of rogue solitons in optical fibres is due to the combined action of linear Anderson localisation and the formation of optical-event horizons. Anderson localised modes are formed in certain temporal locations due to the random background noise. Such localised modes seed the formation of solitary waves at those preferred locations, while the strongest Anderson mode generates the rogue soliton. The event horizon effect between dispersive waves and solitons produces an artificial collective acceleration that favours the collision of solitons during the rogue wave formation.
