Azimuthons in weakly nonlinear waveguides of different symmetries

Zhang, Yiqi; Skupin, Stefan; Maucher, Fabian; Pour, Arpa Galestian; Lu, Keqing; Królikowski, Wieslaw


We show that weakly guiding nonlinear waveguides support stable propagation of rotating spatial solitons (azimuthons). We investigate the role of waveguide symmetry on the soliton rotation. We find that azimuthons in circular waveguides always rotate rigidly during propagation and the analytically predicted rotation frequency is in excellent agreement with numerical simulations. On the other hand, azimuthons in square waveguides may experience spatial deformation during propagation. Moreover,...[Show more]
