Cherenkov radiation emitted by solitons in optical fibers
Journal article, 1995

We demonstrate a simple, fully analytic method of calculating the amount of radiation emitted by optical solitons perturbed by higher-order dispersion effects in fibers and find good agreement with numerical results. It is pointed out that this radiation mechanism is analogous to the well-known Cherenkov radiation processes in nonlinear optics. © 1995 The American Physical Society.
