Helmholtz Solitons: A New Angle in Nonlinear Optics

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


New families of exact analytical Helmholtz solitons are presented for various material nonlinearities, and simulations confirm their stability. A novel generalization of Snell’s Law for Kerr solitons is also reported. Helmholtz angular corrections to paraxial theory, exceeding 100%, are uncovered.
