Instability suppression of clusters of vector-necklace-ring solitons in nonlocal media Academic Article uri icon


  • We study the instability suppression of vector-necklace-ring soliton clusters carrying zero, integer, and fractional angular momentums in nonlocal nonlinear media with an arbitrary degree of nonlocality. We show that the combination of nonlocality and mutual trapping of soliton constituent components can completely stabilize the vector-necklace-ring soliton clusters which are otherwise only quasistable in local media. Our results may be useful to studies of the novel soliton states in Bose-Einstein with dipolar long-range interactions. 2011 American Physical Society.
