Abstract

We consider the optical pulse propagation in a
tapered photonic crystal fiber (PCF) wherein dispersion as well
as nonlinearity varies along the propagation direction. The
generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equation aptly models the
pulse propagation in such a PCF. The design of the tapered PCF
is based on the analytical results which demand that the
dispersion decrease exponentially and the nonlinearity increase
exponentially. By employing the self-similar scaling analysis, we
have already proposed the efficient pulse compression scheme
with the chirped soliton. In order to get more insight into the
dynamics of the pulses (the variations in the amplitude, pulse
width and chirp) while being compressed, we adopt the
generalized projection operator method (POM) which, in turn,
helps arrive at two different sets of pulse parameter equations of
Lagrangian variation method (LVM) and collective variable
method (CVM).
