Paper Abstract

We study the propagation property of soliton pulses in negative-index metamaterials with a nonlinear polarization, and especially analyze the influence of the controllable self-steepening effect, which is resulted from the dispersive magnetic permeability in negative-index metamaterials, on soliton formation and propagation. The results indicate that the negative self-steepening effect also leads to the asymmetry of soliton pulse, the center shift and the decay of higher-order soliton. In addition, the controllable self-steepening effect can be used to counteract the shift of soliton pulse resulted from the third order dispersion effect to make the soliton pulse propagation without center shift to some extent.
