Title: Spatiotemporal localized modes in PT-symmetric optical media

Abstract

We firstly obtain spatiotemporal localized mode solutions of a (3+1)-dimensional nonlinear Schrödinger equation in PT-symmetric potentials, and then discuss the linear stability of LMs, which are also tested by means of direct simulations. Moreover, phase switches and transverse power-flow density associated with these localized modes have also been examined. At last, we investigate the dynamical behaviors of spatiotemporal LMs in three kinds of inhomogeneous media. - Highlights: • Spatiotemporal LMs of a (3+1)-dimensional NLSE in PT-symmetric potentials are obtained. • Phase switches and transverse power-flow density of LM are examined. • Dynamical behaviors of LMs in three kinds of inhomogeneous media are studied.
