Abstract

Temporal solitary waves that are due to the mutual interaction of optical rectification and the electro-optic effect in the presence of a second-order nonlinearity are studied. It is found that a two-parameter family of solitons exists. Analytical solutions are found for special cases. Numerical soliton solutions of the system of equations include single- and multiple-hump solitary waves.
