Mixed-mode spatial solitons in semiconductor waveguides

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We show that in slab waveguides made from the cubic crystals with Kerr nonlinearity, it is possible to observe mixed-mode stationary solitons above certain power levels. It is also shown that, in general, two types of mixed-mode soliton are possible. A bifurcation diagram for these solitons is constructed, and a classification of particular cases is given. The polarization evolution of the solitonlike beams is considered by means of the Poincaré sphere formalism.
