Two-dimensional multi-pole solitons in nonlocal nonlinear media

Rotschild, Carmel; Xu, Zhiyong; Cohen, Oren; Kartashov, Yaroslav V.; Torner, Lluis; Segev, Mordechai


We present the experimental observation of scalar multi-pole solitons in highly nonlocal nonlinear media, including dipole, tripole, quadrupole, and necklace-type solitons, organized as arrays of out-of-phase bright spots. These complex solitons are meta-stable, but with a large parameters range where the instability is weak, enabling their experimental observation.
