Abstract

We investigate the propagation of a soliton in an axially varying optical fiber with a progressive change from anomalous to normal dispersion regimes. Spectral and temporal measurements provide evidence for a complete annihilation of the soliton, which explodes into a polychromatic dispersive wave. This interpretation is confirmed by numerical solution of the generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equation.
