Guiding Light by Light Using Dark Spatial Solitons

Barry Luther-Davies, Xiaoping Yang

The guiding of light by light is one long term aim of nonlinear photonics since it offers the possibility of developing all-optical circuitry where a controlling light beam can rapidly switch or modulate a second information-carrying beam. In this context, there has been considerable recent interest in spatial solitons and their interaction.
