Paper Abstract

Self-focusing leads to bifurcations of transverse solitary waves in sodium vapor (2D) and to second-order spatial solitons in a GaAs planar waveguide gain medium (1D). Transverse patterns in vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers are shown to contain field vortices under some conditions. Good agreement is found between experimental data and computations.
