Pasquazi, Alessia; Peccianti, Marco; Clerici, Matteo; Conti, Claudio; Morandotti, Roberto;

We demonstrate, theoretically and experimentally, that a four-wave mixing parametric interaction is able to arrest the collapse of a two-dimensional multicolor beam in an instantaneous Kerr medium. We consider two weak idlers interacting via a third order nonlinearity w... View more
