Two-dimensional spatial solitons in highly nonlocal nonlinear media Academic Article uri icon


  • We investigate, analytically and numerically, a class of novel higher-order spatial solitons in two transverse-dimensions, in highly nonlocal nonlinear media. The stability of these solutions in propagation is confirmed by direct numerical simulation. Our results demonstrate that the higher-order spatial solitons in highly nonlocal nonlinear media can exist in various forms, such as the fundamental solitons, vortex-ring solitons, multipole solitons, and fractional solitons. 2009 EDP Sciences, SIF, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
