Dynamic Y-branched structures in quadratic nonlinear media

Rights accessOpen Access
A selfsplitting of the beams entering a waveguide made of a quadratic nonlinear material is observed numerically. Relative π phase differences between harmonics as positively contributing to linear diffraction are shown to trigger the effect. Formation of solitons out of this energy so that a Y-branched structure is nonlinearly induced, is shown to be dependent on input and material parameters. Simple setups should provide the means for experimental observation of the predicted phenomena.

Open AccessWe find that the recently introduced model of self-trapping supported by a spatially growing strength of a repulsive nonlinearity gives rise to robust vortex-soliton tori, i.e., three-dimensional vortex solitons, with ...

Open AccessWe show, by means of numerical and analytical methods, that media with a repulsive nonlinearity which grows from the center to the periphery support a remarkable variety of previously unknown complex stationary and dynamical ...

Restricted access - publisher's policyWe consider bright solitons supported by a symmetric inhomogeneous defocusing nonlinearity growing rapidly enough toward the periphery of the medium, combined with an antisymmetric gain-loss profile. Despite the absence ...
