Solitons in nonlocal nonlinear media: exact results  [PDF]
Wieslaw Krolikowski,Ole Bang
Physics , 2000, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevE.63.016610
Abstract: We investigate the propagation of one-dimensional bright and dark spatial solitons in a nonlocal Kerr-like media, in which the nonlocality is of general form. We find an exact analytical solution to the nonlinear propagation equation in the case of weak nonlocality. We study the properties of these solitons and show their stability.
Spiraling elliptic solitons in generic nonlocal nonlinear media  [PDF]
Guo Liang,Qian Shou,Qi Guo
Physics , 2011,
Abstract: We have introduced a class of spiraling elliptic solitons in generic nonlocal nonlinear media. The spiraling elliptic solitons carry the orbital angular momentum. This class solitons are stable for any degree of nonlocality except for the local case when the response function of the material is Gaussian function.
Stable rotating dipole solitons in nonlocal optical media  [PDF]
Servando Lopez-Aguayo,Anton S. Desyatnikov,Yuri S. Kivshar,Stefan Skupin,Wieslaw Krolikowski,Ole Bang
Physics , 2005, DOI: 10.1364/OL.31.001100
Abstract: We reveal that nonlocality can provide a simple physical mechanism for stabilization of multi-hump optical solitons, and present the first example of stable rotating dipole solitons and soliton spiraling, known to be unstable in all types of realistic nonlinear media with local response.
Gray spatial solitons in nonlocal nonlinear media  [PDF]
Yaroslav V. Kartashov,Lluis Torner
Physics , 2007, DOI: 10.1364/OL.32.000946
Abstract: We study gray solitons in nonlocal nonlinear media and show that they are stable and can form bound states. We reveal that gray soliton velocity depends on the nonlocality degree, and that it can be drastically reduced in highly nonlocal media. This is in contrast to the case of local media, where the maximal velocity is dictated solely by the asymptotic soliton amplitude.
Surface dark solitons in nonlocal nonlinear media  [PDF]
XingHui Gao,Luohong Zhou,ZhenJun Yang,Xuekai Ma,Daquan Lu,Wei Hu
Physics , 2011,
Abstract: We predict the existence of surface dark solitons at the interface between a self-defocusing nonlocal nonlinear medium and a linear medium. The fundamental and higher-order surface dark solitons can exist when the linear refractive index of the self-defocusing media is much larger than that of the linear media. The fundamental solitons are stable and the stabilities of higher-order solitons depend on both nonlocality degree and propagation constant.
Nonparaxial spatial optical solitons with nonlocality nonlinearity  [PDF]
Jilong Chen,Zhiwei Shi,Huagang Li
Physics , 2012,
Abstract: We investigate one-dimensional Helmholtz solitons with nonlocal nonlinearity. We show an exact analytical solution to the nonlocal nonlinear nonparaxial propagation equation in the cases of high and weak nonlocality. We also numerically find that the degree of nonlocality can affect the width of nonlocal Helmholtz soliton beams, but have no effect on their stability. Contrarily, nonparaxiality can affect their stability, but have no effect on their width.
Gaussian solitons in nonlocal media: variational analysis

Shen Ming,Xi Ning,Kong Qian,Ge Li-Juan,Shi Jie-Long,Wang Qi,

中国物理 B , 2009,
Abstract: Exact solutions of Gaussian solitons in nonlinear media with a Gaussian nonlocal response are obtained. Using the variational approach, we obtain the approximate solutions of such solitons when the degree of the nonlocality is arbitrary. Specifically, we study the conditions for Gaussian solitons that propagate in weakly and highly nonlocal media. We also compare the variational result with the known exact solutions for weakly and highly nonlocal media.
Modulational instability, solitons and beam propagation in spatially nonlocal nonlinear media  [PDF]
W. Krolikowski,O. Bang,N. I. Nikolov,D. Neshev,J. Wyller,J. J. Rasmussen,D. Edmundson
Physics , 2004, DOI: 10.1088/1464-4266/6/5/017
Abstract: We present an overview of recent advances in the understanding of optical beams in nonlinear media with a spatially nonlocal nonlinear response. We discuss the impact of nonlocality on the modulational instability of plane waves, the collapse of finite-size beams, and the formation and interaction of spatial solitons.
Lattice-supported surface solitons in nonlocal nonlinear media  [PDF]
Yaroslav V. Kartashov,Victor A. Vysloukh,Lluis Torner
Physics , 2006, DOI: 10.1364/OL.31.002595
Abstract: We reveal that lattice interfaces imprinted in nonlocal nonlinear media support surface solitons that do not exist in other similar settings, including interfaces of local and nonlocal uniform materials. We show the impact of nonlocality on the domains of existence and stability of the surface solitons, focusing on new types of dipole solitons residing partially inside the optical lattice. We find that such solitons feature strongly asymmetric shapes and that they are stable in large parts of their existence domain.
Multipole vector solitons in nonlocal nonlinear media  [PDF]
Yaroslav V. Kartashov,Victor A. Vysloukh,D. Mihalache,Lluis Torner
Physics , 2006, DOI: 10.1364/OL.31.001483
Abstract: We show that multipole solitons can be made stable via vectorial coupling in bulk nonlocal nonlinear media. Such vector solitons are composed of mutually incoherent nodeless and multipole components jointly inducing a nonlinear refractive index profile. We found that stabilization of the otherwise highly unstable multipoles occurs below a maximum energy flow. Such threshold is determined by the nonlocality degree.
