Interaction between vector solitons and solitonic gluons

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We describe a physical mechanism for creating multisoliton bound states by which optical solitons are glued together by attraction between the nonsoliton beams that they guide, solitonic gluons. We verify the concept of the solitonic gluons experimentally, observing a suppression of the repulsion between dark solitons owing to an attractive force acting between out-of-phase bright guided beams.
