Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present the first experimental observation of (2 + 1)-dimensional multimode (composite) solitons. A single-hump component and a double-hump (dipole-type) component are jointly self-trapped as a composite soliton in a biased photorefractive crystal.
