We present a gauged Lifshitz Lagrangian including second- and fourth-order spatial derivatives of the scalar field and a Chern-Simons term, and study nontrivial solutions of the classical equations of motion. While the coefficient β of the fourth-order term should be positive in order to guarantee positivity of the energy, the coefficient of the quadratic one need not be. We investigate the parameter domains and find significant differences in the field behaviors. Apart from the usual vortex field behavior of the ordinary relativistic Chern-Simons-Higgs model, we find in certain parameter domains oscillatory solutions reminiscent of the modulated phases of Lifshitz systems.
