  • Beam steering by x(2) trapping 

    Torner Sabata, Lluís; Torruellas, William; Stegeman, George; Menyuk, Curtis (1995-09)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We show numerically the mutual dragging and locking together of intense fundamental and second-harmonic light beams propagating in second-order nonlinear media, and we discuss the potential applications of such effects for ...
  • Bright solitons with second-order nonlinearities 

    Torner Sabata, Lluís; Menyuk, Curtis; Stegeman, George (1995-05)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We investigate the mutual trapping of intense fundamental and second-harmonic waves propagating in materials with second-order nonlinearity. Consistent with Menyuk’s robustness hypothesis of solitons, we numerically observe ...
  • Excitation of solitons with cascaded x(2) nonlinearities 

    Torner Sabata, Lluís; Menyuk, Curtis; Stegeman, George (1994-10)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Mutual trapping of the fundamental and second-harmonic waves propagating in a material with cascaded second-order nonlinearity is investigated. Formation of solitonlike waves under a variety of excitation conditions is ...
  • Observation of two-dimensional spatial solitary waves in a quadratic medium. 

    Torruellas, William; Wang, Zou; Hagan, Dave; VanStryland, Eric; Stegeman, George; Torner Sabata, Lluís; Menyuk, Curtis (1995-06)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We report the first experimental demonstration of two-dimensional spatial solitary waves in second-order nonlinear optical material. When an intense optical beam is focused into a phase-matchable second-order nonlinear ...
  • Solitary waves due to x(2):x(2) cascading 

    Menyuk, Curtis; Schiek, Roland; Torner Sabata, Lluís (1994-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    Solitary waves in materials with a cascaded x(2):x(2) nonlinearity are investigated, and the implications of the robustness hypothesis for these solitary waves are discussed. Both temporal and spatial solitary waves are ...
  • Two-dimensional solitons with second-order nonlinearities 

    Torner Sabata, Lluís; Menyuk, Curtis; Torruellas, William; Stegeman, George (1995-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We investigate the propagation of intense Gaussian beams in materials with quadratic nonlinearity. Excitation of (2 + 1) solitons is numerically predicted at finite phase mismatch and in the presence of linear walk-off ...
