Dimensionality and size of photorefractive spatial solitons

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We study experimentally self-trapping of optical beams in photorefractive media and show that the trapping is inherently asymmetric with respect to the two (transverse) trapping dimensions. We also present experimental results that show how the sizes of the resultant photorefractive spatial solitons are independent (within their range of existence) of the amplitude of the externally applied electric field used to generate them.
