Abstract

Spatial soliton formation in the bulk single-crystal polydiacetylene para-toulene sulfonate has been studied experimentally. The unique nonlinearity of this material at 1600  nm leads to stable solitons below an intensity maximum, and for higher intensities the input beams form a ring and a soliton.
