Abstract

We investigate the propagation of spatial solitons in cylindrical strongly nonlocal media by a method of image beam of light. The dynamic force of the soliton steering resulting from the boundary effect is equivalent to the force between the soliton beam and the image beam. The trajectory of the soliton is analytically studied, which is in good agreement with the experimental results.
