Abstract

The dynamical collapse and break up of bright soliton Y junctions and breather solitons as a result of dispersion-induced structural bifurcations are numerically demonstrated. The propagation of light pulses in planar single-mode waveguide under the influence of normal group velocity dispersion is described by the (1+2) dimensional nonlinear Schrodinger equation. The basic steering behavior of these Y junctions is obtained from the solution of the Zakharov-Shabat eigenvalue problem for the dispersionless case.
