Spatial optical solitons in generic nonlocal nonlinear media Academic Article uri icon


  • A generic nonlocal nonlinear optical system with a diffusive type of nonlinearity is investigated analytically, using the homogeneous balance principle and the F-expansion technique. Exact traveling wave and soliton solutions are discovered. Numerical simulation of their propagation and interaction properties is carried out. Our results demonstrate that the nonlocal solitary waves can be manipulated and controlled by changing the nonlocality parameter. © 2010 Springer-Verlag.
