Abstract:
The effect of linear absorption on TE0 nonlinear guided waves and the effect of linear absorption, input-beam misalignment and nonlinear saturation on soliton emission from a nonlinear waveguide have been numerically investigated using the beam propagation method. In the first case the distribution of the absorption is found to have a dramatic effect on the propagation of the nonlinear guided waves. In the second case results reminiscent of the lossless case are found to survive in the presence of these complications.
