Continuously self-focusing and continuously self-defocusing two-dimensional beams in dissipative media

Ankiewicz, Adrian; Devine, Natasha; Akhmediev, Nail; Soto-Crespo, J.M.


Using the Lagrangian formalism, with a simple trial function for dissipative optical two-dimensional (2D) soliton beams, we show that there are two disjoint sets of stationary soliton solutions of the complex cubic-quintic Ginzburg-Landau equation, with concave and convex phase profiles, respectively. These correspond to continuously self-focusing and continuously self-defocusing types of 2D solitons. Their characteristics are distinctly different, as the energy for their existence can be...[Show more]
