propagation, ultrashort pulse, Kerr medium
Impact of such terms as third order dispersion, self-steepening and stimulated Raman scattering on evolution of ultrashort pulses is considered in detail. Under influence of these effects, pulse did not maintain its initial shape. Pulse splits into constituents, its spectrum also evolving into several bands which are known as optical shock and self-frequency shift phenomena. We concluded that when the input peak power is large enough, dynamics of pulse splitting will be complicated. Our numerical simulations were in good agreement with experimental results.
