Boundary force effects exerted on solitons in highly nonlinear media.

Abstract

We study the effects caused by remote boundaries on soliton dynamics in nonlinear media with a large range of nonlocality, and demonstrate theoretically and experimentally how asymmetric boundary forces can lead to soliton steering and oscillation in predetermined trajectories.
