Abstract: The nonlinear propagation of counterpropagating pulses in a distributed feedback fiber grating is numerically analysed. We discuss the role of the input pulse time width, mean wavelength and peak power on the self-switching, time compression and break-up of the transmitted and reflected pulses from the grating.
