Dipole-mode vector solitons in anisotropic nonlocal self-focusing media

Neshev, Dragomir; McCarthy, Glenn; Calvo, G F; Agullo-Lopez, F; Krolikowski, Wieslaw; Ostrovskaya, Elena; Kivshar, Yuri


We demonstrate, theoretically and experimentally, that dipole-mode vector solitons created in biased photorefractive media possess a number of anisotropy-driven properties, such as stability of a selected orientation, wobbling, and incomplete rotation, owing to the anisotropic nonlocal response of the photorefractive non-linearity. Such features are found for higher-order (multipole) vector solitons, and they are carefully verified in an experiment.
