Soliton transverse instabilities in anisotropic nonlocal self-focusing media

Motzek, Kristian; Kaiser, Friedemann; Chu, Wen-Hen; Shih, Ming-Feng; Kivshar, Yuri


We study, both theoretically and experimentally, the transverse modulational instability of spatial stripe solitons in anisotropic nonlocal photorefractive media. We demonstrate that the instability scenarios depend strongly on the stripe orientation, but the anisotropy-induced features are largely suppressed for spatial solitons created by self-trapping of partially incoherent light.
