The Peregrine soliton is a localized nonlinear structure pre-
dicted to exist over 25 years ago, but not so far experimentally
observed in any physical system1
. It is of fundamental signif-
icance because it is localized in both time and space, and be-
cause it defines the limit of a wide class of solutions to the non-
linear Schrödinger equation (NLSE). Here, we use an analytic
description of NLSE breather propagation2
