Abstract

In this paper, nonlinear Schrödinger equation (NLSE) with self-steepening term for dispersive permittivity and permeability which governs the ultrashort pulse propagation through negative-index materials (NIMs) is studied. The Lax pair is constructed for this model by employing AKNS procedure. The soliton solutions are generated with symbolic computation through Darboux transformation and the frequency regimes for their existence have been worked out. Through the graphical analysis of the soliton solutions, the propagation features of optical pulses and their interaction behaviours in NIMs are investigated.
