Modulational instability and solitons in nonlocal media with competing nonlinearities

Esbensen, B K; Wlotzka, A.; Bache, M.; Bang, Ole; Krolikowski, Wieslaw


We theoretically investigate properties of individual bright spatial solitons and their interaction in nonlocal media with competing focusing and defocusing nonlinearities. We consider the general case with both nonlinear responses characterized by different strengths and degrees of nonlocality. We employ a variational approach to analytically describe soliton properties. In particular, we prove analytically that the interplay of focusing and defocusing nonlocal nonlinearities leads to...[Show more]
