Afanasjev VV, Kivshar YS, Menyuk CR. Effect of third-order dispersion on dark solitons. Opt Lett. 1996;21(24):1975-7.
Third-order dispersion has a detrimental effect on dark solitons, leading to resonant generation of growing soliton tails and soliton decay. This effect is shown to be much stronger than that for bright solitons.
