We investigate self-focusing in bulk media with anisotropic nonlocal photorefractive response. Analytical results demonstrate the possibility of the existence of anisotropic soliton solutions. Self-focusing of Gaussian beams and their convergence to elliptically shaped soliton solutions is investigated theoretically and demonstrated experimentally.
PACS: 42.65.Tg – Optical solitons; nonlinear guided waves / 42.65.Jx – Beam trapping, self-focusing, and thermal blooming / 42.65.Hw – Phase conjugation, optical mixing, and photorefractive effect
