We consider the evolution of nonlinear optical pulses in graded-index amplifiers exhibiting self-focusing or self-defocusing non-Kerr nonlinearities. The pulse propagation in such nonlinear media is governed by the generalized cubic-quintic nonlinear Schrödinger equation. Using the self-similar analysis, we analytically find the chirped bright soliton solutions in the anomalous and normal dispersion regimes. These chirped spatial solitary waves may find applications in future all optical networks.
