Abstract

We address the existence of ring solitons broken by several nodes in a defocusing saturable nonlinear medium with an imprinted Bessel optical lattice. Such a multipolelike soliton is composed of two or more arc patterns with opposite phase between the adjacent components. The width of existence domain is determined only by the saturation degree of medium. The maximum number of soliton components depends on the radius of the lattice ring, where they reside. Those novel solitons can be trapped entirely on any ring of the Bessel lattice provided that the lattice is modulated deep enough. This study offers a smooth transition from the multipole soliton to necklace soliton.
