In a recent paper [Physical Review E 97, 022210 (2018)], Paz Albares et al. study an effective integrable nonlinear model describing an electron moving along the axis of a deformable helical molecule. The helical conformation of dipoles in the molecular backbone induces an unconventional Rashba-like interaction that couples the electron spin with its linear momentum. In addition, a focusing nonlinearity arises from the electron-lattice interaction, enabling the formation of a variety of stable solitons such as bright solitons, breathers, and rogue waves. A thorough study of the soliton solutions for both focusing and defocusing nonlinear interaction is presented and discussed.
