Abstract

We investigate properties of dark solitons under competing nonlocal cubic–local quintic nonlinearities. Analytical results, based on a variational approach and confirmed by direct numerical simulations, reveal the existence of a unique dark soliton solutions with their width being independent of the degree of nonlocality, due to the competing cubic–quintic nonlinearities.
