Abstract

We address the problem of the existence and stability of vector spatial solitons formed by two incoherently interacting optical beams in bulk Kerr and saturable media. We identify families of 2+1-dimensional two-mode self-trapped beams, with and without a topological charge, and describe their properties analytically and numerically.
