Abstract

The neck instability of bright solitons of the hyperbolic nonlinear Shrödinger equation is investigated. It is shown that this instability originates from a four-wave mixing interaction that links on-axis to off-axis radiation at opposite frequency bands. Our experiment supports this interpretation.
