Dipole-mode vector solitons

Garcia-Ripoll, Juan J; Perez-Garcia, Victor M; Ostrovskaya, Elena; Kivshar, Yuri


We find a new type of optical vector soliton that originates from trapping of a dipole mode by the soliton-induced waveguides. These solitons, which appear as a consequence of the vector nature of the two-component system, are more stable than the previously found optical vortex solitons and represent a new type of extremely robust nonlinear vector structure.
