We present the theory and the experimental observation of break-up of two-dimensional bright spatial solitons propagating in a three-dimensional bulk photorefractive nonlinear medium due to transverse modulation instability.
PACS: 42.65.Jx – Beam trapping, self-focusing, and thermal blooming / 42.65.Tg – Optical solitons; nonlinear guided waves / 42.65.Hw – Phase conjugation, optical mixing, and photorefractive effect
