Solitonic characteristics of Airy beam nonlinear propagation

Abstract : We analyze the nonlinear propagation of a one-dimensional Airy beam. Under nonlinear focusing conditions, the Airy beam splits into a weak accelerating structure and a beam that has been named an "off-shooting soliton." Experimental measurements and numerical results related to the off-shooting Airy beam are compared to soliton theoretical profiles and a good agreement is found in terms of transverse shape, width, and amplitude. We identify the different parameters to generate an Airy beam off-shooting soliton and demonstrate that its profile is also preserved through propagation over long distances.
