Abstract

We demonstrate that nonlinear optical fiber arrays can support stable solitonlike pulses with finite energy. The bound state that we have found is localized both in time and in spatial domain in the direction perpendicular to the pulse propagation. Numerical studies support our analytical conclusions.
