Abstract

We show that when spatially localized gain landscape performs accelerated motion in the transverse plane, i.e., when it rotates or oscillates around the light propagation axis, the effective gain experienced by the light beam considerably reduces with an increase of the amplitude of oscillations or frequency of rotation of the localized gain. In the presence of uniform background losses and defocusing nonlinearity, such gain landscapes may support dynamically oscillating gain-managed solitons, but if the amplitude of oscillations or the frequency of rotation of the localized gain exceeds a threshold, stable attractors disappear and any input beam decays.
