abstract

  • We show that both orthogonal and parallel internal modes exist on the background of a dispersion-managed (DM) soliton in randomly birefringent fibers. The orthogonal modes exist for arbitrarily small values of the dispersion map strength, while the parallel modes exist only when the map strength exceeds a certain threshold value. We demonstrate that initial perturbations of a DM soliton's profile that consist of one or more internal modes, exhibit nearly stable oscillations over very long propagation distances, before decaying into radiation.
