Abstract
We review the main properties and the potential applications of photorefractive solitons. Several different types of photorefractive solitons are referred, but a special attention is paid to one type: the photorefractive screening soliton. Both bright and dark screening solitons, together with the corresponding induced waveguides, are identified and discussed. The main characteristics of soliton interactions and the more recent topic of incoherent solitons are also reviewed.
