Escaping solitons from a trapping potential

Escaping solitons from a trapping potential
Escaping solitons from a trapping potential
Solitons propagating within a confining potential undergo momentum-dependent scattering and eventually escape for large excitations. We experimentally highlight this phenomenon in the presence of a nonperturbative nonlinear response using self-confined light beams in a reorientational medium.

Abstract

Solitons propagating within a confining potential undergo momentum-dependent scattering and eventually escape for large excitations. We experimentally highlight this phenomenon in the presence of a nonperturbative nonlinear response using self-confined light beams in a reorientational medium.
