Paper Abstract

We show numerically and experimentally that ring dark spatial solitons can be generated using a phase disk mask or an opaque ring. In the first case one ring is produced and in the second a pair. Rings generated by phase disk are very stable when they are perturbed with one-dimensional dark solitons. The stability of rings generated by opaque rings depends on the size of the perturbation and symmetry of the initial condition. The propagation and stability of these solitons is analyzed numerically and experimentally.
