Abstract

Elliptic X-shaped light bullets, which are generated as nondiffraction elliptic Bessel-like beams with central humps of elliptical shape during the propagation of asymmetric input ultrashort pulses in normal dispersive quadratic media, are demonstrated to be quite stable against wave-packet breakup due to asymmetric input or anisotropic diffraction. Walking elliptic X-shaped light bullets can be observed without spatial wave-packet breakup for strongly coupled fundamental-wave and second-harmonic ultrashort pulses with nonvanishing group-velocity mismatch.
