Abstract

Optical fiber communication has developed rapidly because of the needs of the information age. Here, the variable coefficients fifth-order nonlinear Schrödinger equation (NLS), which can be used to describe the transmission of femtosecond pulse in the optical fiber, is studied. By virtue of the Hirota method, we get the one-soliton and two-soliton solutions. Interactions between solitons are presented, and the soliton stability is discussed through adjusting the values of dispersion and nonlinear effects. Results may potentially be useful for optical communications such as all-optical switches or the study of soliton control.
