Snell’s law for Kerr bright and dark solitons

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


The behaviour of solitons at nonlinear interfaces is intrinsically an angular problem, for which previous paraxial analysis are restricted to bright solitons and vanishingly-small angles of propagation. Helmholtz soliton theory1 provides the framework for analysing reflection and refraction properties of bright2 and dark solitons impinging on a nonlinear interface at arbitrary angles of incidence, for the first time.
