We consider the evolution of nonlinear optical pulses in some
inhomogeneous optical media wherein the pulse propagation is governed by
the nonlinear Schrodinger equation (NLSE) with variable dispersion. We
deduce an exponentially varying dispersion profile as a candidate for
full analytical treatment from the Painleve integrability condition. For
media with this exponential dispersive profile, we explain the existence
and the formation of chirped optical soliton through the variational
equation for the chirp. This chirped optical soliton can be used for
efficient pulse compression in any nonlinear optical media.
