Suppression of collapse for spiraling elliptic solitons

Desyatnikov, Anton S; Buccoliero, Daniel; Dennis, Mark R; Kivshar, Yuri


We reveal that orbital angular momentum can suppress catastrophic self-focusing in nonlinear Kerr media supporting stable spiraling solitons with an elliptic cross section. We discuss the necessary requirements for observation of this effect with coherent optical and matter waves.
