Spiraling multivortex solitons in nonlocal nonlinear media

Buccoliero, Daniel; Desyatnikov, Anton S.; Krolikowski, Wieslaw; Kivshar, Yuri S.


We demonstrate the existence of a broad class of higher-order rotating spatial solitons in nonlocal nonlinear media. We employ the generalized Hermite–Laguerre–Gaussian ansatz for constructing multivortex soliton solutions and study numerically their dynamics and stability. We discuss in detail the tripole soliton carrying two spiraling phase dislocations, or self-trapped optical vortices.
