Collapse suppression and soliton stabilization through nonlocality in bulk Kerr media Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • We show that self-focusing cannot occur in bulk Kerr media with a nonlocal nonlinear response. We find the stationary solutions and show that nonlocality makes them stable. The results are verified numerically.
