Paper Abstract

Light bullets i.e. ultra short spatial-temporal solitons propagating in the Kerr nonlinear media are investigated in the framework of the paraxial approximation by means of both aberrationless approximation and variational approach. It is shown that oscillatory light bullets of picosecond and femtosecond ranges may be stable for significant distances in the Kerr media. Different possible modes of propagation are investigated, critical threshold values of the energy of the pulse defining the limits of these modes are found. Exact expression for the focal distance of the collapse is found in the (1 + 2)-dimensional case.
