Paper Abstract

By using a reduced model for dissipative optical soliton beams, we show that there are two disjoint sets of fixed points. These correspond to stationary solitons of the radial complex cubic-quintic Ginzburg - Landau equation with concave and convex phase profiles, respectively. We confirm these results by numerical simulations which reveal soliton solutions of two different types: continuously self-focussing and continuously self-defocusing.
