Observation of spatial optical solitons in a nonlinear glass waveguide

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We report the observation of spatial optical solitons due to the Kerr nonlinearity in a planar glass waveguide and present measurements of the nonlinear response obtained by placing a pinhole at the output of the waveguide. For input intensities greater than that required for the fundamental soliton, we observe breakup of the output owing to the effect of two-photon absorption.
