Abstract

In this paper, we describe analytically the propagation of Airy-type pulses truncated by a finite-time aperture when second- and third-order dispersion effects are considered. The mathematical method presented here, which is based on the superposition of exponentially truncated Airy pulses, is very effective and allows us to avoid the use of time-consuming numerical simulations. We analyze the behavior of the time-truncated ideal Airy pulse and also the interesting case of a time-truncated Airy pulse with a “defect” in its initial profile, which reveals the self-healing property of this kind of pulse solution.
