We demonstrate that optical solitons can exist in dispersion-inverted highly-nonlinear AlGaAs nanowires. This is accomplished by strongly reversing the dispersion of these nano-structures to anomalous over a broad frequency range. These self-localized waves are possible at very low power levels and can form in millimeter long nanowire structures. The intensity and spectral evolution of solitons propagating in such AlGaAs nanowaveguides is investigated in the presence of loss, multiphoton absorption and higher-order dispersion.
