Abstract

It is predicted that the fundamental spatial solitons, namely bright, dark, and gray solitons associated with photoisomerization, can be formed stably except for antidark solitons. The soliton solutions and the relative properties of these solitons are given in detail. Incoherently coupled bright–dark soliton pairs are also investigated. Both the cases indicate that although the formation of a spontaneous bright soliton based on photoisomerization is impossible, it is, however, possible to form a bright soliton with the joining of a background light or the coupling of another dark soliton. The results provide possible methods of controlling a light with another light.
