Paper Abstract

We study theoretically how to use a four level atomic system with electromagnetic induced transparency, to achieve a situation with giant χ(3) and χ(5) susceptibilities of opposite signs. We show how to use this configuration to obtain multidimensional optical solitons and light condensates with surface tension properties analogous to those of usual liquids.
