Attraction of nonlocal dark optical solitons

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We study the formation and interaction of spatial dark optical solitons in materials with a nonlocal nonlinear response. We show that unlike in local materials, where dark solitons typically repel, the nonlocal nonlinearity leads to a long-range attraction and formation of stable bound states of dark solitons.
