Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

The interaction of bound multiple solitons generated by two orthogonally polarized high-amplitude pulses is experimentally studied in a strongly birefringent fiber. The results in the presence of strong birefringence show that the initial conditions rapidly evolve into solitonlike structures whose overall motion depends on a finite set of effective degrees of freedom over a long and finite length.
