The finite-difference time-domain algorithm is extended to solving the Maxwell's equations with nonlinear terms which include all exact Sellmeier-fitting values in this paper. The results obtained by the presented method are in good agreement with those from experiments, and this method is even better than solving the generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equation by split-step Fourier method. The spectral phase of propagated pulses is also obtained by the presented method, which is important for investigation of single-cycle optical pulse generation via phase compensation of the nonlinear-chirped in silica fibers.
