Paper Abstract

In this work we study the evolution of dark beams of finite length carrying edge-screw phase dislocations in selffocusing Kerr nonlinear media aiming to find appropriate conditions to control the process of filamentation of the background beam. In the case of a single fractional vortex dipole, geometry-controlled conditions for changing the intensity ratio of the peaks and their offset are found. Depending on their orientation, two parallel or two in-line mixed phase dislocations carried by a common background beam are predicted to perturb it and to initiate filamentation of different number of peaks with different spatial distributions.
