Résumé : The snake instability of the bright soliton stripe hyperbolic nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equation, was studied. The experiment was performed in the context of optics with laser pulses propagating in a planar waveguide. The soliton stripe was obtained by a broad laser beam made of ultrashort pulses into a 2.5 mm-long planar waveguide. The existence of the soliton antisymmetric unstable mode pertaining to the hyperbolic nature of the NLS equation considered in the study, was proved.
