Abstract
We analyze the properties of vortex solitons generated in Kerr and non-Kerr nonlinear optical media, including the vortex drift and rotation in a diffracting Gaussian beam. We also present our recent analytical and experimentally results on the vortex-induced break-up of a dark-soliton stripe, and discuss a connection of this phenomenon with the well-known Aharonov-Bohm effect in solids.
