Abstract

To break cylindrical symmetry and to achieve fully three-dimensional collisions of bistable light bullets, we have investigated the effect of a varying impact parameter. Novel effects such as soliton tunneling and spiral arm formation have been observed, some of which have no direct one-dimensional analog. The extreme stability and attractorlike behavior of optical bullets is demonstrated.
