Incoherent vector vortex-mode solitons in self-focusing nonlinear media

Motzek, Kristian; Kaiser, Friedemann; Salgueiro, José R.; Kivshar, Yuri S.; Denz, Cornelia


We suggest a novel type of composite spatial optical soliton created by a coherent vortex beam guiding a partially incoherent light beam in a self-focusing nonlinear medium. We show that the incoherence of the guided mode may enhance, rather than suppress, the vortex azimuthal instability, and also demonstrate strong destabilization of dipole-mode solitons by partially incoherent light.
