Theory of grating superstructures

Broderick, N.G.Raphael and de Sterke, C.Martijn (1997) Theory of grating superstructures Physical Review E, 55, (3), pp. 3634-3646. (doi:10.1103/PhysRevE.55.3634).

We develop the theory of linear and nonlinear grating superstructures, gratings in which the parameters vary periodically with position on the scale of typically about 1 mm. Following earlier work in semiconductors, these have now been written in optical fibers. We develop the theory by introducing a set of 'super envelopes': envelopes of the usual envelope functions of the grating structure. We show that under very general conditions these super envelopes satisfy a set of super coupled mode equations, and that these equations have solitary wave solutions
