  • Soliton generation by counteracting gain-guiding and self-bending 

    Lobanov, Valery E.; Kartashov, Yaroslav V.; Vysloukh, Victor A.; Torner Sabata, Lluís (2012-11-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We introduce a concept for stable spatial soliton formation, mediated by the competition between self-bending induced by a strongly asymmetric nonlocal nonlinearity and spatially localized gain superimposed on a wide ...
  • Solitons supported by spatially inhomogeneous nonlinear losses 

    Borovkova, Olga V.; Kartashov, Yaroslav; Vysloukh, Victor A.; Lobanov, Valery E.; Malomed, Boris A.; Torner Sabata, Lluís (2012)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We uncover that, in contrast to the common belief, stable dissipative solitons exist in media with uniform gain in the presence of nonuniform cubic losses, whose local strength grows with coordinate η (in one dimension) ...
  • Stabilization of spatiotemporal solitons in Kerr media by dispersive coupling 

    Kartashov, Yaroslav V.; Malomed, Boris A.; Konotop, Vladimir V.; Lobanov, Valery E.; Torner Sabata, Lluis (OSA, 2015-03-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    We introduce a mechanism to stabilize spatiotemporal solitons in Kerr nonlinear media, based on the dispersion of linear coupling between the field components forming the soliton states. Specifically, we consider solitons ...
  • Stable vortex-soliton tori with multiple nested phase singularities in dissipative media 

    Borovkova, Olga V.; Lobanov, Valery E.; Kartashov, Yaroslav; Torner Sabata, Lluís (2012)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We show the existence of stable two- and three-dimensional vortex solitons carrying multiple, spatially separated, single-charge topological dislocations nested in a common vortex-ring core. Such nonlinear states are ...
  • Topological light bullets supported by spatiotemporal gain 

    Lobanov, Valery E.; Borovkova, Olga V.; Kartashov, Yaroslav; Vysloukh, Victor A.; Torner Sabata, Lluís (2012-02-02)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We reveal that the competition among diffraction, cubic nonlinearity, two-photon absorption, and gain localized in both space and time results in arrest of collapse, suppression of azimuthal modulation instabilities for ...
