    The influence of dust size distribution on the dust ion acoustic solitary waves in a collisional dusty plasma is investigated. It is found that dust size distribution changes the amplitude and width of a solitary wave. A critical wave number is derived for the existence of purely damping mode. A...

    Using mW light beams to generate spatial solitons in nematic liquid crystals, all-optical switching/ logic can be performed on a signal launched in the soliton-induced waveguides. Through the collisional behavior of solitons in a nonlocal medium, the signal can be steered in angle and output...
