Soliton-like propagation of fs pulses in dispersion-engineered silicon photonic wires is theoretically investigated. Quasi-soliton propagation is demonstrated for 100-fs pulses over large propagation lengths for a realistic patterned silicon wire of optimally engineered group-velocity dispersion (GVD) profile.
