Abstract

The phenomenon of rotation of optical solitons propagated in a nonlinear medium is investigated theoretically. The orbiting state with formation of a space structure, similar double helix, can arise, when the solitons are directed noncoplanarly. Numerical solution of the variational equations for the beams, interacting in Kerr medium, reveals, that if the powers of beams are less than critical power of a self-focusing, it is possible to select parameters of beams, when the diffraction bleed is the slower process on a comparison with shaping of a helix. In the cubic-quintic media the multidimensional solitons are stable and analysis of angular momentum conservation and interaction potential of a soliton pair show, that stable orbiting state can be used for all-optical over-fast switches in a bulk media.
