Abstract:We address the phenomenon of self-splitting of N-soliton bound states into their individual soliton constituents in a planar Kerr medium with a waveguide that has a triangular linear refractive index. The splitting is due to the fact that each soliton component experiences different change of propagation angle which is driven by the potential introduced by the refractive index variation and the soliton amplitude. Our numerical simulations show that the break up only disturbs the propagation angle of each single soliton constituent but not its amplitude.
