Abstract

We present detailed theoretical studies of optical spatial solitons (SSs) supported by photoisomerization nonlinearity in a polymer sample. One-dimensional dark and bright SSs and their existence curves are presented. Several combinations of polarizations of the signal and background beams can be used to form the SSs.
