Fusion, collapse, and stationary bound states of incoherently coupled waves in bulk cubic media

Bang, Ole; Bergé, L; Rasmussen, Jens Juul


We study the interaction between two localized waves that propagate in a bulk (two transverse dimensions) Kerr medium, while being incoherently coupled through cross-phase modulation. The different types of stationary solitary wave solutions are found and their stability is discussed. The results of numerical simulations suggest that the solitary waves are unstable. We derive sufficient conditions for when the wave function is bound to collapse or spread out, and we develop a theory to describe...[Show more]
