Abstract
The propagation of a nonresonant optical soliton in the presence of spectral filtering, linear, and nonlinear gain is investigated. By keeping the filtering fixed, we show that the steady-state soliton amplitude diverges as the linear gain vanishes. We also show that the nonlinear gain only reduces but does not suppress the instability due to the background linear waves. This instability can be suppressed by considering the saturation of the nonlinear gain, while it is accentuated by the detuning of the soliton from the gain peak frequency.
