This paper retrieves optical soliton solution to the perturbed complex Ginzburg-Landau equation that is studied with nine different forms of nonlinearity. The trial solutions approach is the integration algorithm adopted in this paper. The perturbation terms appear with full nonlinearity to get a taste of generalized setting. Bright, dark and singular soliton solutions are obtained. The existence criteria of such solitons are also presented. (C) 2018 Elsevier GmbH. All rights reserved.
