Abstract

We investigated on the influence of a temporally dispersive Kerr effect on the modulation instability and the propagation of solitary wave pulse. The modulation instability gain is derived and compared with numerical calculations. The role of nonlinear response time on reshaping the solitary pulse is examined.
