Partially Coherent Solitons on a Finite Background

Akhmediev, Nail; Ankiewicz, Adrian


We have found a new class of exact solutions for multicomponent partially coherent solitons in photorefractive media with a drift mechanism of nonlinear response. Their novel feature is that the composite M-component sech-shaped soliton is located on a constant-background plane wave. The solutions are characterized by two free parameters and these are related to the maximum intensity of the composite soliton and to the amplitude of the background.
