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 address the properties of optical solitons in thermal nonlinear media with a local refractive index defect that is capable to trap solitons launched even close to the sample boundary despite the boundary-mediated ...
Stable radiating gap solitons and their resonant interactions with dispersive waves in systems with a parametric pump Yulin, Alexey V; Gorjao, Leonardo R.; Staliunas, Kestutis (2014-11-24)
Restricted access - publisher's policyWe study the formation of gap solitons in the presence of a parametric pump. It is shown that a parametric pump can stabilize stationary solitons continuously emitting dispersive waves. The resonant interactions of the ...
