Nonlinear Schrödinger Equation Solver


We are now providing an executable file for download that solves the Nonlinear Schrödinger equation by using the symetric split-step method. This program was written in C++/VC++ and will work on all Microsoft windows based computers with operating systems (Win95 - Current/Future). The executable file, which is 56k, includes plotting and visualization software along with the option to explort the results of the simmulations.

This program solves the Nonlinear Schrödinger equation as given by:

It is intended to serve as a suplemental tool for those learning nonlinear optics since it alows the user to change all of the parameters and thus quickly see their effect of the pulse propagation. Moreover, it includes examples from Professor Agrawal's Nonlinear Fiber Optics book. Although these may be loaded and run to obtain the same figures found in the above mentioned book users can gain a more detailed understanding by changing parameters, such as chirp, and viewing their effect on propagation.

Here is a screen shot of the program (for those interested)



This program, its examples, this file and a more detailed *.pdf file are all included in the *.zip file. Click here to download Version 1.0 now.
