Stabilization of Bright Optical Vortex Solitons in Nonlocal Nonlinear Media

Yakimenko, Alexander I; Zaliznyak, Yuri A; Kivshar, Yuri


An optical vortex is a light beam that carries a phase singularity. Such singular beams can be generated experimentally in different types of linear and nonlinear media [1]. The unique features of vortex fields are expected to lead to many applications including optical data storage, image distribution and processing, optical tweezers, optical trapping and manipulation, etc. However, optical vortices become highly unstable in self-focusing nonlinear media due to the symmetry-breaking azimuthal...[Show more]
