Multipole spatial vector solitons

Desyatnikov, Anton S; Neshev, Dragomir; Kivshar, Yuri; Luther-Davies, Barry; Garcia-Ripoll, Juan J; Perez-Garcia, Victor M; Krolikowski, Wieslaw; Ostrovskaya, Elena


We introduce the concept of multipole spatial optical vector solitons associated with higher-order guided modes trapped by a soliton-induced waveguide in a bulk medium. Such stationary localized waves include previously predicted vortex- and dipole-mode vector solitons and also describe new higher-order vector solitons and necklace-type beams. We present the theoretical and experimental results of the structure, formation, and instability development of the quadrupole vector solitons.
