  Abstract

Benchmarking of the numerical split-step Fourier method in solving a soliton propagation equation in a nonlinear optical medium is considered. This study is carried out by comparing the solutions calculated by numerics with those obtained by analytics. In particular, the soliton propagation equation used as the object of observation is the nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equation, which describes optical solitons in optical fiber. By using the split-step Fourier method, we show that the split-step Fourier method is accurate. We also confirm that the nonlinear and dispersion parameters of the optical fiber influence the soliton propagation.
