Modulational instability (MI) is addressed in an optical fiber under competing effects between pure-quartic dispersion (PQD), self-steepening, and intrapulse Raman response. The self-steepening parameter reduces the maximum MI gain and the frequency bandwidth. Under the combined effects of the self-steepening and intrapulse Raman scattering, more spectral windows appear in the gain spectrum, induced by the increasing Raman effect. Numerical results fully concur with the theoretical predictions. The MI is manifested by the emergence of ultrashort pulses trains and rogue wave breathing trains. Under increasing self-steepening effect, asymmetric sidebands, reversible via the Raman scattering effect, appear in the spectral and temporal evolution of the pulse trains, which probes the tunability of energy transfer between the mode during signal propagation. Our results open up further perspectives for exploring mechanisms to generate ultrashort pulses in PQD optical media under higher-order nonlinearities, with applications to silicon photonic crystal waveguides and silica photonic crystal fibers.
