Abstract

We report for the first time the experimental observation of quasi-cw nonlinear switching and multiple gap soliton formation within the bandgap of a fibre Bragg grating. Up to 5 gap solitons with 100ps-500ps durations were generated from a 2ns pulse ata launched peak intensity of ~27GW/cm2. A corresponding increase in the grating transmission from 3% to 40% of the incident pulse energy was observed
