Abstract
The reductive perturbation method was applied to the propagation of two orthogonal polarized sub-100 fs soliton pulses, in a singlemode fiber, to give an analytical propagation model. The analytical propagation model was transformed into a numerical propagation model via the symmetrized split-step Fourier method. The numerical propagation model was then used to analyze the switching efficiency of an inverter soliton-trapping gate (STG) and an inverter soliton-dragging gate (SDG), with a clock time window of about four pulse widths. For the STG and the SDG, with the control on the slow axis, the switching maximum clock time windows are reduced by 32 percent and 62 percent respectively, due to the self and cross Raman effects. However, for the STG and SDG, operated with the control on the fast axis, it was found that the switching maximum clock time windows are increased by 30 percent and 28 percent respectively, due to the self and cross Raman effects.
