Abstract

The transverse snake instability of the bright soliton solution of the (2+1)-dimensional hyperbolic nonlinear Schrödinger equation is experimentally studied. We observed this instability in the spatial distribution of the temporal spectrum of spatially extended femtosecond pulses propagating in normally dispersive self-defocusing planar semiconductor waveguide.
