We establish the qualitative behavior of the incommensurability , optimal domain wall filling and chemical potential for increasing doping by a systematic slave-boson study of an array of vertical stripes separated by up to d=11 lattice constants. Our findings obtained in the Hubbard model with the next-nearest neighbor hopping t'=-0.15t agree qualitatively with the experimental data for the cuprates in the doping regime . It is found that t' modifies the optimal filling and thus triggers the crossover to the diagonal (1,1) spiral phase at increasing doping, stabilized already at for t'=-0.3t.
