Abstract

We study the existence and stability of multi-component spatial optical solitons in anisotropic nonlocal photorefractive media. For the case of three components, we find numerically the whole family of composite solitons with two perpendicular dipole components, and show their stability for a wide range of parameters. We confirm our theoretical results by an experimental observation of these novel types of composite optical solitons in a photorefractive strontium barium niobate crystal.
