In this report generation of solitons and different types of it has been introduced. Wide applications of solitons in studying light and matter interaction in ultra-fast time scales and in very small dimensions has captured a lot of attention. FDTD numerical simulation has been implemented to verify the special features of soliton while propagating in a kerr-type nonlinear medium.
