Dipole solitons in a two-dimensional optically induced photonic lattice are theoretically predicted and experimentally demonstrated for the first time to our knowledge. It is shown that such dipole solitons are stable and robust under appropriate conditions. Our experimental results are in good agreement with theoretical predictions.
