Abstract: The propagation of a nonlinear ultrashort pulse in a photonic bandgap structure is investigated by using the finite-difference time-domain method. The simulation results show that an ultrashort pulse near the bandgap edge can propagate through a nonlinear fiber Bragg grating, even if the broadband spectrum of this ultrashort pulse overlaps the whole forbidden band of the grating. It is also shown that the time delay of such an ultrashort solitary wave is proportional to its detuning wavelength from the exact Bragg resonance. (C) 2002 Published by Elsevier Science B.V.
