Spontaneous knotting of self-trapped waves

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


We describe theory and simulations of a spinning optical soliton whose propagation spontaneously excites knotted and linked optical vortices. The nonlinear phase of the self-trapped light beam breaks the wave front into a sequence of optical vortex loops
