Abstract

In this paper we answer the question: “what types of spatial soliton can be formed based on two-photon-isomerisation (TPI)”. The conclusion that anti-dark solitons are not supported by monotonic nonlinearity should cast light on the notion of fundamental spatial solitons. The idea to obtain a bright TPI soliton with the joining of a background light or with the coupling of a dark soliton offers new schemes of light-controlling-light.
