Solitons and collapse suppression due to parametric interaction in bulk Kerr media

Not Accessible

Abstract

We demonstrate that weak parametric interaction of a fundamental beam with its harmonic field in a Kerr medium can drastically modify the beam dynamics, giving rise to very complex bifurcation phenomena and quasi solitons. Most importantly, we reveal a novel physical mechanism of the collapse suppression in a bulk optical Kerr medium: parametric coupling to a weakly radiating harmonic field.
