Abstract : Dark solitons have provoked much interest since they were first shown to be particular solutions of the two-dimensional (1+1)-D nonlinear Schrodinger equation (NSE) with a negative (self-defocusing type) nonlinear coefficient n2. So far, only (1+1)-D temporal dark solitons (intensity minimums propagating along a nonlinear fiber on a quasi-cw bright background) have been observed experimentally.
