Three-dimensional spatiotemporal solitary waves in strongly nonlocal media Academic Article uri icon


  • We construct a class of three-dimensional strongly nonlocal spatiotemporal solitary waves of the nonlocal nonlinear Schrdinger equation, by using superpositions of single accessible solitons as initial conditions. Evolution of such solitary waves, termed the accessible light bullets, is studied numerically by choosing specific values of topological charges and other solitonic parameters. Our numerical results reveal that in strongly nonlocal nonlinear media with a Gaussian response function, different classes of accessible spatiotemporal solitons can be generated and controlled by tailoring different soliton parameters. 2010 Elsevier B.V.
