1. Introduction

Metamaterials are materials which have both the permeability ( $\mu $ ) and the permittivity ( $\epsilon $ ) parameters are set negative at the same frequency [1] [2] . This kind of materials is often called double-negative material or left-handed metamaterials [1] [2] . This class of materials has negative refractive index. So, they are not found in nature but they can be artificially designed [2] . At microwave frequencies transmission lines have been proposed [3] , a special left-handed transmission line [4] , and composite right/left-handed transmission line [5] .

The analysis of extreme wave events has formed one of the most useful points of intense theoretical investigations and physical applications [6] [7] . Several researches and diverse experiments have been done in order to observe the emergence of extreme events in many physical domains. Among them, we have nonlinear optics [8] , modelocked lasers [9] , hydrodynamics [10] , and plasmas [11] . The most known rogue events are Peregrine solitons [12] , Kuznetsov-Ma breathers [13] [14] , and Akhmediev breathers [15] .

One of the most significant rogue waves mechanism of generation is modulation instability which can be seen as a fundamental property of many nonlinear dispersive systems [16] . This phenomenon is associated with the growth of periodic perturbations on a continuous-wave background [16] . In optics, modulation instability comes from noise results in a series of high-contrast peaks of random intensity [17] [18] . These localized peaks are compared to ocean rogue waves [19] . More so, significant researches on modulation instability are been done in some domains such as nonlinear optics [20] [21] , hydrodynamics [22] , and electrical transmission lines [23] .

However, there exists a strange phenomenon directly related to the investigation of extreme events. It appears when a chaotic waves field is generated by modulation instability. This expanding structure corresponds to the so-called “tree structure” [24] . Some investigations have been done in literature concerning this phenomenon. Among them, there is the “Christmas tree” which appears during the formation of Peregrine waves [25] . Such phenomenology has been firstly observed and extensively analyzed in [26] , which is related to the umbilical gradient catastrophe. It has been also shown that Raman effect can induce the appearance of particular “tree structure” with roots which can be called “roots of propagation” [24] [27] . Authors else such as Dudley [28] , sustains that such “tree structures” correspond to signatures of analytic nonlinear Schrödinger equation solutions in chaotic modulation instability [24] . Furthermore, to the best of our knowledge, the characterization of electromagnetic wave behavior, the description of internal excitation leading to specific rogue waves generation, the so-called tree structures corresponding to rogue events signature in a chameleon transmission line, have been least reported.

In this paper, based on the work of Fukushima *et* *al*. [29] , Marquié *et* *al*. [23] and that of Togueu *et* *al*. [30] , we model the electromagnetic wave behavior by a nonlinear Schrödinger equation. Thus, this equation includes second-order dispersion and cubic-nonlinearity in a modulable transmission line. The coefficients of this equation are expressed as function of frequency. This electromagnetic wave is analyzed when right-handed behavior and left-handed one alternatively exhibited in the line. The chameleon’s behavior of this particular line is verified. Furthermore, some specific conditions allowing the line to act as a filter are presented at low frequencies. More so, we also present internal and physical conditions leading to special rogue events such as the so-called tree structures. We demonstrate that the line can support dark and bright soliton solutions. Moreover, collective coordinates technique and the Gaussian ansatz function are used [31] , in order to characterize the light pulse.

The paper is organized as follows. In Section 2, we present the logarithmic nonlinearity for the capacitance, the voltage propagation equations and the nonlinear Schrödinger equation model. The coefficients of this last equation are plotted in order to improve the comprehension of strange phenomena studied. Thereafter, we apply the collective coordinates technique in order to obtain the collective coordinate equations of motion. In Section 3, we apply numerical experiments in order to investigate numerically the collective coordinates and present the results. The outcomes are summarized in Section 4.

2. Mathematical Description of the Model

2.1. Preliminaries

The model under consideration represents a modulable nonlinear electrical transmission line where elementary cell is illustrated in Figure 1 [29] [30] .

Each unit cell, such as the n^{th} one, contains a linear inductor
${L}_{1}$ in parallel with a linear capacitor
${C}_{1}$ in the series branch and a linear inductor
${L}_{2}$ in parallel with a nonlinear capacitor
$C\left({V}_{n}\right)$ in the shunt branch. Here we assume that the logarithmic nonlinearity for the capacitance is given by [32] [33] :

$C\left({V}_{n}\right)=\frac{{V}_{0}{C}_{0}}{{V}_{n}}\mathrm{ln}\left(1+\frac{{V}_{n}}{{V}_{0}}\right)$ (1)

where ${V}_{0}$ and ${C}_{0}$ take constant values.

Applying Kirchhoff’s laws to the circuit model, we can obtain the following voltage propagation equations [30] :

$\begin{array}{l}\left({V}_{0}+{V}_{n}\right)\frac{{\text{d}}^{2}{V}_{n}}{\text{d}{t}^{2}}-{\left(\frac{\text{d}{V}_{n}}{\text{d}t}\right)}^{2}\\ =\frac{{\left({V}_{0}+{V}_{n}\right)}^{2}}{{V}_{0}}\left\{\left({u}_{0}^{2}+{C}_{r}\frac{{\text{d}}^{2}}{\text{d}{t}^{2}}\right)\left({V}_{n+1}+{V}_{n-1}-2{V}_{n}\right)-{\omega}_{0}^{2}{V}_{n}\right\}\end{array}$ (2)

Figure 1. Model for the unit-cell circuit.

where ${C}_{r}=\frac{{C}_{1}}{{C}_{0}}$ , ${u}_{0}^{2}=\frac{1}{{L}_{1}{C}_{0}}$ and ${\omega}_{0}^{2}=\frac{1}{{L}_{2}{C}_{0}}$ . Equation (2) shows that an

additional dispersion coefficient ${C}_{r}$ is considered on the line. Thereafter, the numerical simulations will consider the following parameters [23] [30] : ${L}_{1}=680\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mu \text{H}$ , ${L}_{2}=470\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mu \text{H}$ , ${C}_{0}=470\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{pF}$ and ${V}_{0}=3.9\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{V}$ .

The capacitor ${C}_{1}$ is considered as a free parameter with physically acceptance value [30] . According to the investigations done in [30] , the parameter ${C}_{r}$ will impose the behavior of the transmission line. So, they show that when

${C}_{r}<\frac{{L}_{2}}{{L}_{1}}$ we have the right-handed behavior, but for
${C}_{r}>\frac{{L}_{2}}{{L}_{1}}$ , the transmission line exhibits left-handed behavior. It is important to note that a rapid calculation leads to
$\frac{{L}_{2}}{{L}_{1}}\approx 0.691$ . This situation justifies the name “*Chameleon* *transmission* *line*” because the line changes its behavior but does not modify its external aspect.

2.2. Theoretical Model for Electrical Transmission Line

The nonlinear Schrödinger equation inspired from [30] , but reformulated in terms of slowly varying envelope of the electric field $A\left(Z\mathrm{,}\tau \right)$ as follows [34] :

$\frac{\partial A}{\partial Z}=-i\frac{{\Theta}_{2}}{2}\frac{{\partial}^{2}A}{\partial {\tau}^{2}}+i\Upsilon {\left|A\right|}^{2}A$ (3)

where $A\left(Z\mathrm{,}\tau \right)$ is the slowly varying envelope of the electric field at position $Z=\epsilon \left(n-{V}_{g}t\right)$ and at time $\tau ={\epsilon}^{2}t$ [30] . Here $\epsilon $ is a positive and small parameter. The terms ${\Theta}_{2}$ and $\Upsilon $ are second-order dispersion and cubic-nonlinearity, respectively [35] [36] [37] [38] . These above mentioned coefficients are defined as follows [30] :

${\Theta}_{2}=-\frac{{V}_{g}^{2}}{2\omega}+\frac{\left({u}_{0}^{2}-{C}_{r}{\omega}^{2}\right)\mathrm{cos}\left(k\right)-4{C}_{r}{V}_{g}\omega \mathrm{sin}\left(k\right)}{2\omega \left[1+4{C}_{r}{\mathrm{sin}}^{2}\left(\frac{k}{2}\right)\right]}$ (4)

$\Upsilon =\frac{3\omega}{2{V}_{0}^{2}}\left[-1+\frac{8{C}_{r}{\mathrm{sin}}^{2}\left(\frac{k}{2}\right)}{1+4{C}_{r}{\mathrm{sin}}^{2}\left(\frac{k}{2}\right)}\right].$ (5)

where the wave number k is taken in the Brillouin zone. This dispersion relation admits two cutoff frequencies at $k=0\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}\cdot {\text{Cell}}^{-1}$ and $k=\pi \text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}\cdot {\text{Cell}}^{-1}$ [30] . The group velocity is given by [30] :

${V}_{g}=\frac{\left({u}_{0}^{2}-{C}_{r}{\omega}_{0}^{2}\right)\mathrm{sin}\left(k\right)}{\omega {\left[1+4{C}_{r}\mathrm{sin}{\left(\frac{k}{2}\right)}^{2}\right]}^{2}}.$ (6)

The group velocity ${V}_{g}$ plays a key role in the nature of waves.

2.3. Collective Coordinate’s Theory

The collective coordinate’s technique is a great method of characterization of a light pulse intensity profile using ansatz functions [39] [40] . The variational equations are essential to obtain a good description of the light pulse [35] [36] .

2.3.1. Conventional Gaussian Ansatz Function

For our variational analysis, the desired form of the Gaussian ansatz function f is given by [37] [38] :

$\begin{array}{c}f\left(Z,\tau \right)={X}_{1}\left(Z\right)\mathrm{exp}[-{\left(\frac{\tau -{X}_{2}\left(Z\right)}{{X}_{3}\left(Z\right)}\right)}^{2}+\frac{1}{2}i{X}_{4}\left(Z\right){\left(\tau -{X}_{2}\left(Z\right)\right)}^{2}\\ \begin{array}{c}\underset{\text{\hspace{0.05em}}}{\text{\hspace{0.05em}}}\\ \text{\hspace{0.05em}}\end{array}+i{X}_{5}\left(Z\right)\left(\tau -{X}_{2}\left(Z\right)\right)+i{X}_{6}\left(Z\right)]\end{array}$ (7)

where ${X}_{1},{X}_{2},\sqrt{2\mathrm{log}2}{X}_{3},\frac{{X}_{4}}{2\pi},{X}_{5},{X}_{6}$ are the conventional collective coordinates often used to represent the pulse amplitude, temporal position, full width at half-maximum (FWHM) of peak power, chirp, frequency shift and phase, respectively [41] [42] .

2.3.2. Collective Coordinate Equations of Motion.

Then, the equations of motion obtained from Bare approximation [39] [40] , are given by the following expressions [31] [42] :

${\stackrel{\dot{}}{X}}_{1}\left(Z\right)=\frac{1}{2}{X}_{1}{X}_{4}{\Theta}_{2}\left(Z\right)$ (8)

${\stackrel{\dot{}}{X}}_{2}\left(Z\right)=-{X}_{5}{\Theta}_{2}\left(Z\right)$ (9)

${\stackrel{\dot{}}{X}}_{3}\left(Z\right)=-{X}_{3}{X}_{4}{\Theta}_{2}\left(Z\right)$ (10)

${\stackrel{\dot{}}{X}}_{4}\left(Z\right)=\left({X}_{4}^{2}-\frac{4\text{\hspace{0.05em}}}{{X}_{3}^{4}}\right){\Theta}_{2}\left(Z\right)-\sqrt{2}\frac{{X}_{1}^{2}}{{X}_{3}^{2}}\Upsilon \left(Z\right)$ (11)

${\stackrel{\dot{}}{X}}_{5}\left(Z\right)=0$ (12)

${\stackrel{\dot{}}{X}}_{6}\left(Z\right)=\left(\frac{1}{{X}_{3}^{2}}-\frac{1}{2}{X}_{5}^{2}\right){\Theta}_{2}\left(Z\right)+\frac{5\sqrt{2}}{8}{X}_{1}^{2}\Upsilon \left(Z\right).$ (13)

Equations (8)-(13) present the variational equations which are function of the coefficients ${\Theta}_{2}\left(Z\right)$ and $\Upsilon \left(Z\right)$ . All these equations are influenced by ${\Theta}_{2}\left(Z\right)$ except the dynamics of frequency shift, ${\stackrel{\dot{}}{X}}_{5}\left(Z\right)$ , which is only closed to zero. Furthermore, the quantity $\Upsilon \left(Z\right)$ is only acted on ${\stackrel{\dot{}}{X}}_{4}\left(Z\right)$ and ${\stackrel{\dot{}}{X}}_{6}\left(Z\right)$ . However, the most important point is that all the variational equations are strongly dependant on frequency $\omega $ [37] [38] .

3. Numerical Experiments

3.1. Initial Conditions at the Beginning of the Propagation

The initial conditions at the beginning of the propagation are the same compared to those used in [35] [36] [37] [38] . For the analysis of our optical system the wave number is taken as $k=3\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}\cdot {\text{Cell}}^{-1}$ . Otherwise, two lengths of propagation will be taken such as $Z=3\times {10}^{-24}\text{m}$ and $Z={10}^{-6}\text{m}$ . Figures 2-4 show

Figure 2. Frequency dependencies of the coefficients of Equation (3). (a) Second-order dispersion: (a) ${C}_{r}=0$ and (b) ${C}_{r}=0.3$ . Cubic-nonlinearity: (c) ${C}_{r}=0$ and (d) ${C}_{r}=0.3$ .

frequency dependencies of coefficients of Equation (3) for ${C}_{r}=0$ , ${C}_{r}=0.3$ , ${C}_{r}=1$ , ${C}_{r}=1.5$ and ${C}_{r}=10$ . These figures present the variations of second-order dispersion and that of cubic-nonlinearity. In addition, the variations of the product of these two effects are also included. According to the collective coordinate representation, the solid red curve corresponds to the dynamics of collective coordinates obtained from bare approximation (Gaussian Ansatz function) as depicted in Figure 5(a) and Figure 5(b). Further, the dashed black curves represent the collective coordinates coming from minimization. Thus, the dotted green curve gives the residual field energy (RFE) [35] [36] [37] [38] .

Figure 6(a) and Figure 6(b) represent full numerical equations [35] [36] [37] . Moreover, Figure 6(c) and Figure 6(d) show 2D full numerical equations [24] [27] [28] .

3.2. Introduction of Right-Handed Propagation

The right-handed behavior occurs on the line when $0\le {C}_{r}<0.691$ [30] . Consequently, two cases will be investigated known as ${C}_{r}=0$ and ${C}_{r}=0.3$ .

Figure 6. Chaotic wave’s field for ${C}_{r}=0$ . Full equations: (a) $\omega =0.25\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}/\text{s}$ ; (b) $\omega =0.78\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}/\text{s}$ . 2D Full equations: (c) $\omega =0.25\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}/\text{s}$ ; (d) $\omega =5\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}/\text{s}$ [Frequency ranges considered: $0\le \omega \le 0.78\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}/\text{s}$ and $\omega >0.78\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}/\text{s}$ at $Z=3\times {10}^{-24}\text{m}$ ].

3.2.1. Akhmediev-Peregrine Waves Field Generation at Low Frequencies

The first considered case is ${C}_{r}=0$ at low frequencies $0<\omega <0.78\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}/\text{s}$ for $Z=3\times {10}^{-24}\text{m}$ . When the frequency is given such as $\omega =0.25\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}/\text{s}$ we obtain ${\Theta}_{2}=-0.5\times {10}^{25}{\text{ps}}^{2}\cdot {\text{m}}^{-1}$ and $\Upsilon =-0.025\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{\text{W}}^{-1}\cdot {\text{m}}^{-1}$ as depicted in Figure 2(a) and Figure 2(c). Besides, the product ${\Theta}_{2}\Upsilon >0$ , so the nonlinear Schrödinger model supports bright soliton solution as seen in Figure 3(a). The strong negative nonlinearity acts on the weak negative dispersion in order to provoke the multiplication of several broken points presented in Figure 5(a). In fact, all the dynamic of collective coordinates coming from minimization are broken at $Z=0.5\times {10}^{-24}\text{m}$ . This situation reveals that a strange phenomenon acts in the system. So, the bright soliton has lost its stability. Besides, the residual field energy increases and approaches 100 percent. This information suggests an increase of internal distortions as depicted in Figure 5(a). The strong negative nonlinearity continues to act on the weak negative dispersion in order to induce the fragmentation of the bright soliton into several grains of activity [43] . Hence, once grains activated, the spatial inhomogeneity acts as a nonlocal coupling that provides a coherent build-up of an extreme event. These monster events continue to undergo distortions originating from the strong negative nonlinearity. Besides, this trouble situation provokes the multiplication of strong harmonic waves with several residual wave motions at adjacent sideband frequencies [16] [22] [43] . This situation induces the modulation of residual waves. Hence, this perturbed situation provokes the generation of a chaotic waves field containing one Akhmediev-Peregrine soliton [44] (left) and several Akhmediev breathers (right) [15] [43] , as depicted in Figure 6(a).

3.2.2. Tree Like-Structures at Low Frequencies

The observation of 2D full equation of this perturbed waves field shows the fragmentation of the bright soliton as depicted in Figure 6(c). Besides, the collapse of this wave leads to a strange phenomenon. In fact, we observe a strange structure similar to a tree with the multiple roots [25] . Those roots propagate randomly in the optical system as seen in Figure 6(c). Then, this structure can be assimilated to a tree with many roots which can be called roots of propagation [25] . Besides, the most colored point in the left part corresponds to the Akhmediev-Peregrine wave. In the second part, the black big points stand for the Akhmediev waves train in which the amplitude waves reach 0.75 × 10^{26} W as illustrated in Figure 6(c). The average black points also correspond to the average Akhmediev waves train. Their amplitudes approach 0.5 × 10^{26} W. Moreover, the very small black point stands for the most little Akhmediev waves train in which the waves amplitude reaches 0.25 × 10^{26} W as depicted in Figure 6(c) and Figure 6(e). Further, similar rogue signatures have been studied. Among them we have the researches concerning specific tree structures called Christmas tree [25] . Consequently, this expanding structure, which is called Christmas tree appears to emerge past the formation of the original Peregrine peak [25] . As the structure expands, progressively at the peak emergence times more localized peaks arise. Furthermore, this strange tree structure has been also investigated in Kundu-Eckhaus equation by Bayindir [27] . Indeed, it has been assimilated to a chaotic waves field induced by modulation instability [27] . Otherwise, a similar situation has also been presented in optical field by Dudley *et* *al*. [28] . In fact, tree structure is assimilated to signatures of analytic nonlinear schrödinger equation solutions in chaotic modulation instability. Hence, the structure obtained is similar to a density map [28] . Then, according to previous investigations [25] [27] , each rogue event has a particular signature corresponding to a specific tree structure. So, we present here the particular signature of a chaotic waves field containing Akhmediev-Peregrine waves, Peregrine waves and Akhmediev wave trains.

3.2.3. Soliton Stability at High Frequencies

We consider ${C}_{r}=0$ and the propagation at high frequencies is obtained for $\omega >0.78\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}/\text{s}$ for $Z=3\times {10}^{-24}\text{m}$ . When the frequency increases from $\omega =0.25\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}/\text{s}$ to $\omega =0.35\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}/\text{s}$ , the strong negative nonlinearity continues to acts on the weak negative dispersion. This situation leads to the broken points exhibited by the dynamic of collective coordinates originating from minimization as illustrated in Figure 5(b). Indeed, this dynamics of collective coordinates begins to beak at $Z=2.5\times {10}^{-24}\text{m}$ . This information denotes that perturbations least act in the system since they only influence the end of the propagation as depicted in Figure 5(b). If the frequency continues to increase from $\omega =0.35\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}/\text{s}$ to $\omega =0.78\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}/\text{s}$ , the bright soliton gains in stability as depicted in Figure 6(b) where the robustness of the pulse is presented. In fact, the strong negative nonlinearity and the weak negative dispersion are completely compensated [24] , and have built up a robust wave. Despite the action of perturbations depicted in Figure 5(b), the stability of bright soliton is totally restored at high frequency as shown in Figure 6(d) by the signature of the stable soliton. Moreover, similar soliton light pulse stability was recently investigated in ultracold bosonic seas by Charalampidis [25] .

3.3. Second Case of Right-Handed Propagation

The second case of right-handed behavior of the electrical line is considered for
${C}_{r}=0.3$ [30] . When the frequency is considered such as
$\omega =0.15\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}/\text{s}$ the second-order dispersion coefficient has a weak negative value −10^{24} ps^{2}∙m^{−}^{1} and the cubic-nonlinearity presents a strong positive value 1.5 × 10^{−}^{3} W^{−}^{1}∙m^{−}^{1} as depicted in Figure 2(b) and Figure 2(d). The product of these two effects is
${\Theta}_{2}\Upsilon <0$ as illustrated in Figure 3(b). Hence, at low frequencies the dark soliton propagates. The soliton light pulse regains its stability as seen in Figure 7(a). Besides, it appears that the weak negative value of dispersion is completely compensated the strong positive value of the nonlinearity in order to build-up the dark soliton depicted in Figure 7(a). This stability is maintained at high frequencies as illustrated in Figure 7(b) for
$\omega =0.15\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{Mrad}/\text{s}$ . It clearly appears that the introduction of
${C}_{r}=0.3$ modifies the behavior of the line at low frequencies. In fact, the line acts as a bandpass filter [30] , which totally cleans and cancels the distortions acting at low frequencies as depicted in Figure 7.

3.4. Introduction of Left-Handed Propagation

The left-handed behavior occurs when ${C}_{r}>0.691$ . Three cases will be investigated corresponding to ${C}_{r}=1$ , ${C}_{r}=1.5$ and ${C}_{r}=10$ . We consider the first mentioned case of left-handed behavior known as ${C}_{r}=1$ . Figure 4(a) presents ${\Theta}_{2}\Upsilon <0$

Figure 7. Soliton light pulse propagation for ${C}_{r}=0.3$ . (a) Full equations $\omega =0.15\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}/\text{s}$ ; (b) 2D Full equations $\omega =0.15\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{Mrad}/\text{s}$ [Frequency ranges considered: $0\le \omega \le 0.78\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}/\text{s}$ and $\omega >0.78\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}/\text{s}$ at $Z=3\times {10}^{-24}\text{m}$ ].

justifying the propagation of dark soliton. The dynamic of collective coordinates originating from Gaussian Ansatz practically reconstruct the behavior exhibited by that coming from minimization as depicted in Figure 8(a). Despite some disparities exhibited by those two dynamic, residual field energy approaches 0.02 percent. This fact suggests that the reconstruction is good as depicted in Figure 8(a) revealing the robustness of the soliton light pulse. This stability and this robustness are clearly maintained at low frequencies when the frequency increases from $\omega =0.15\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}/\text{s}$ to $\omega =0.25\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}/\text{s}$ as depicted in Figure 8(a) and Figure 9(a). In addition, this stable behavior exhibits its signature as illustrated in Figure 9(c).

Moreover, we consider the significant increase of the length of propagation from
$Z=3\times {10}^{-24}\text{m}$ to
$Z={10}^{-6}\text{m}$ . Besides, at high frequencies for
$\omega =0.25\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{Mrad}/\text{s}$ the dynamics of collective coordinates originating from minimization reconstructs that coming from Gaussian Ansatz as seen in Figure 8(b). The residual field energy confirms the good reconstruction since it reaches 0.2 percent. When the frequency significantly increases from
$\omega =0.25\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{Mrad}/\text{s}$ to
$\omega =25\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{Mrad}/\text{s}$ , second-order dispersion and cubic-nonlinearity interact. This situation induces modulational instability leading to the collapse of the dark soliton. This above mentioned modulational instability provokes the coherent build-up of the chaotic waves field depicted in Figure 9(b). Indeed, as previously observed the chaotic waves field presents Akhmediev-Peregrine freak wave and Akhmediev waves trains as depicted in Figure 9(b). The signature of this chaotic waves field is also illustrated in Figure 9(d). However, the aspect of this chaotic waves field is practically identical to that obtained at low frequencies when right-handed propagation was considered as depicted in Figure 9(d) and Figure 6(c). So, the significant increase of the length of propagation from 3 × 10^{−}^{24} m to 10^{−}^{6} m induces a considerable decrease of soliton peak power from 2.5 × 10^{26} W to 7 W.

The propagation is not favorable at high frequencies for left-handed behavior of the line. More so, the behavior of the line has changed. When right-handed behavior occurs the soliton light pulse propagates at high frequencies and it is destroyed at low frequencies. However, when left-handed behavior arrives the soliton light pulse propagates very well at low frequencies and it is totally destroyed at high frequencies. Hence, all these results suggest that the soliton light pulse propagates in opposite sense when the line changes its behavior from right-handed to left-handed. This result allows us to rename this transmission line as chameleon transmission line since its behavior changes without modify its physical aspect. This information is identical to that recently in [30] .

3.5. Impact of C_{r} on Tree Structures

We consider the case of right-handed propagation where ${C}_{r}=0$ at low frequencies. So, we obtain the tree structure depicted in Figure 6(c). This tree structure corresponds to rogue events signature where Akhmediev-Peregrine waves and Akhmediev waves trains appeared. At low frequencies, the rogue events which appear on the rogue signature depicted in Figure 6(c) are completely cancelled when ${C}_{r}=0.3$ as seen in Figure 7(b).

3.5.1. Modified Chaotic Waves Field

This figure corresponds to the signature of the stable soliton light pulse. So, the transmission line acts as bandpass filter at low frequencies. At high frequencies, when ${C}_{r}=1$ the left-handed behavior occurs and the rogue events signature is restored as seen in Figure 9(d). It is clearly observed that the number of big black points was increased from three to four as seen in Figure 6(c) and Figure 9(d). This result suggests that the radiations have increased in the system and they have provoked the multiplication of rogue events when $\omega =25\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{Mrad}/\text{s}$ . If the frequency is maintained and ${C}_{r}$ increases from 1 to 1.5 the number of black big points decreases from four to three as depicted in Figure 9(d) and Figure 10(a). This situation denotes that the radiations have decreased in the system. So, the number of Akhmediev waves trains have decreased. If ${C}_{r}=10$ the radiations significantly increase leading to a strong perturbed chaotic waves field depicted in Figure 10(b). Besides, this perturbed system exhibits a strange tree structure illustrated in Figure 10(c). The precedent chaotic waves has changed into a strong perturbed chaotic waves field. The new field exhibits three Akhmediev-Peregrine rogue waves corresponding to the most colored points as seen in Figure 10(c). There are also some Peregrine waves represented by the least colored points. Otherwise, some Akhmediev waves trains are also represented.

3.5.2. Modified Tree Structure

In addition, when we pass from right-handed behavior (
${C}_{r}=0$ ) to left-handed one (
${C}_{r}=1$ ) the peak power decreases from 2.5 × 10^{26} W to 7 W as seen in

Figure 10. Influence of ${C}_{r}$ parameter on rogue events signature at $Z={10}^{-6}\text{m}$ when $\omega =25$ Mrad/s. 2D Full equations: (a) ${C}_{r}=1.5$ and (c) ${C}_{r}=10$ ; (b) Full equation ${C}_{r}=10$ .

Figure 6(c) and Figure 9(d). This brutal decrease of pulse peak power is not only due to the increase of the distance, but also due to a strange phenomenon. This strange phenomenon responsible to the strong decrease of peak power is called absorption. This phenomenon is normal because absorption is always observed in left-handed materials [45] . Besides, it has been demonstrated that in a realistic metamaterial system, absorption is unavoidable [45] [46] [47] [48] . In fact, some researchers such as Popov and Shalaev [45] sustain that absorption can be counteracted by optical amplification. Moreover, for left-handed behavior when ${C}_{r}$ increases from 1 to 10 the peak power also increases from 7 W to 25 W as depicted in Figure 9(d) and Figure 10(c). It appears that the dimensionless capacitor ${C}_{r}$ plays a crucial role in this transmission line. First, it modifies the aspect of rogue events signature. Second, it induces the multiplication of rogue events. Three, it introduces right- or left-handed behavior on the transmission line. Four, it modifies the pulse peak power. Five, it provokes the inversion of sense of waves propagation on the line. Six, it transforms the line into a bandpass filter at low frequencies.

3.6. Influence of Frequency on Soliton Peak Power

Moreover, when the dimensionless capacitor is neglected (
${C}_{r}=0$ ) at right-handed behavior, the frequency significantly increases from 0.25 rad/s to 5 Mrad/s. Then, the soliton peak power considerably decreases from 2.5 × 10^{26} W to 14 × 10^{20} W. This situation is clearly illustrated in Figure 6(c) and Figure 9(d). So, an increase of frequency implies a decrease of pulse peak power in right-handed behavior of the line. However, if the right-handed propagation is maintained (
${C}_{r}=0.3$ ), the frequency increases from 0.15 rad/s to 0.15 Mrad/s. Moreover, the soliton peak power also decreases from 10 × 10^{26} W to 5 × 10^{3} W as depicted in Figure 7(a) and Figure 7(b). Hence, this behavior of frequency is similar to that above mentioned. If the left-handed behavior (
${C}_{r}=1$ ) occurs the frequency increases from
$\omega =0.25\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}/\text{s}$ to
$\omega =25\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{Mrad}/\text{s}$ . Consequently, the soliton peak power significantly decreases from 6×10^{23} W to 7 W as depicted in Figure 9(a) and Figure 9(b). It clearly appears that the influence of frequency on peak power strongly dependant on the value of dimensionless capacitor
${C}_{r}$ in the case of left-handed behavior.

4. Conclusion

In summary, we have studied an electromagnetic wave propagation when second-order dispersion and cubic-nonlinearity effects come into play. Those effects interact in a modulable electrical transmission line in order to build up dark or bright soliton. Thereafter, the manifestations exhibited for both right-handed and left-handed behaviors have been compared. Thus, collective coordinates technique of investigation has been used in order to study internal and external behaviors of electromagnetic light pulse. This investigation has been done at specific frequency ranges known as $0<\omega \le 0.78\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}/\text{s}$ and $\omega >0.78\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{rad}/\text{s}$ . The numerical analysis leads to the following numerical outcomes. Firstly, we have verified that the line supports dark and bright soliton solutions. Thereafter, we also have verified that the line can exhibit chameleon’s behavior. Indeed, we have shown that for right-handed behavior ( ${C}_{r}=0$ ), we obtain a chaotic waves field containing Akhmediev-Peregrine freak wave and Akhmediev freak waves trains, at low frequencies. However, this situation has been improved at high frequencies where a stable soliton has been obtained. Secondly, the second case of right-handed behavior ( ${C}_{r}=0.3$ ) has shown that the line acts as a bandpass filter at low frequencies and has maintained the robustness of the soliton at high frequencies. Thirdly, the left-handed behavior ( ${C}_{r}=1$ ) has restored the chaotic waves field at high frequencies and a stable soliton at low frequencies. Fourthly, we have presented the key role played by the dimensionless capacitor ${C}_{r}$ on the line. One, it has modified the aspect of rogue events signature and has induced the multiplication of rogue events. Two, it has introduced right- or left-handed behavior on the transmission line. Three, it also has modified the pulse peak power and has provoked the inversion of sense of waves propagation on the line.
