Abstract

We report novel dynamical regimes of “light bullets” supported by an annularly periodic potential in the three-dimensional (3D) complex Ginzburg-Landau equation with the cubic-quintic nonlinearity. This is a model of an active optical medium with respective expanding anti-waveguiding structures with m2 (integer) annularly periodic modulation. If the potentials are strong enough, they give rise to continuous generation of m jets light bullet by an initial light bullet initially placed at the center. The influence of m and diffusivity term (viscosity) β on the corresponding strength of potential is studied. In the case of m = 0 (conical geometry), these are concentric waves expanding in the radial direction.
