Induced focusing and spatial wave breaking from cross-phase modulation in a self-defocusing medium

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

The spatial effects of cross-phase modulation on a weak probe beam as it copropagates with an intense pump beam through a self-defocusing medium are investigated. Experimental results are presented that demonstrate induced focusing, beam deflection, and the spatial analog of optical wave breaking. The experimental results are in good qualitative agreement with theoretical predictions.
