Soliton transverse instabilities in nonlocal nonlinear media

Lin, YuanYao; Lee, Ray-Kuang; Kivshar, Yuri S.


We analyze the transverse instabilities of spatial bright solitons in nonlocal nonlinear media, both analytically and numerically. We demonstrate that the nonlocal nonlinear response leads to a dramatic suppression of the transverse instability of the soliton stripes, and we derive the asymptotic expressions for the instability growth rate in both short- and long-wave approximations.
