Abstract

Dark soliton stripes are robust but can decay into optical vortex solitons when subjected to a persistent, long-period, transverse modulation. We explore the nonlinear dynamics of this symmetry-breaking process and determine growth rates, vortex densities, and other characteristics by conducting a nonlinear stability analysis that uses numerical techniques for several cases of special interest.
