Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

The intensity-dependent wave-vector and field distributions for TE-polarized nonlinear waves guided by a thin dielectric film bounded on one side by a higher-order nonlinear self-focusing cladding characterized by the dielectric function = c+ αc|E|2 + βc|E|4 and on the other side by a linear substrate are calculated exactly. The stability to propagation of these stationary nonlinear wave solutions is investigated numerically. The results are compared with those obtained for Kerr-law nonlinear media.
