Abstract

We study the formation of a nonlinear localized high-dimensional optical beam in a lifetime- broadened three-state atomic system. We show that stable high-dimensional spatial optical solitons with extremely weaklight intensity can occur in such a highly resonant medium through a mechanism of electromagnetically induced transparency. We demonstrate that the interaction between two high-dimensional spatial optical solitons displays interesting properties and these solitons can be easily controlled by manipulating the coupling optical field of the system.
