Oblique interaction of spatial dark-soliton stripes in nonlocal media. Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • We report what we believe to be the first experimental observation of a large spatial lateral shift in the interaction of obliquely oriented spatial dark-soliton stripes. We demonstrate by numerical simulations that this new effect can be attributed to the specific features of optical media with a nonlocal nonlinear response.
