Abstract

We introduce the generation of dense trains of light-bullets in nonlocal nonlinear dielectrics. We exploit stable spatio-temporal self-trapped optical packets stemming from the interplay between local electronic and nonlocal reorientational nonlinearities, considering a seeded temporal modulation instability by specifically referring to nematic liquid crystals.
