Spatiotemporal optical solitons in nonlinear dissipative media: from stationary light bullets to pulsating complexes

Akhmediev, Nail; Soto-Crespo, J. M.; Grelu, Philippe


Nonlinear dissipative systems display the full (3+1)D spatiotemporal dynamics of stable optical solitons. We review recent results that were obtained within the complex cubic-quintic Ginzburg-Landau equation model. Numerical simulations reveal the existence of stationary bell-shaped (3+1)D solitons for both anomalous and normal chromatic dispersion regimes, as well as the formation of double soliton complexes. We provide additional insight concerning the possible dynamics of these soliton...[Show more]
