Abstract

We predict the existence of a new type of spatiotemporal soliton (so-called light bullets) in two-dimensional self-induced-transparency media with refractive-index modulation in the direction transverse to that of pulse propagation. These self-localized guided modes are found in an approximate analytical form. Their existence and stability are confirmed by numerical simulations, and they may have advantageous properties for signal transmission.
