Abstract

We discovered that boundary conditions can stabilize nonlocal solitons with an oscillatory periodic response function. These solitons are the equivalent of quadratic solitons consisting of fundamental waves and oscillatory second harmonics, which are unstable unless subject to boundary confinement.
