Induced spatiotemporal modulation instability in a noninstantaneous self-defocusing medium

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We demonstrate theoretically and experimentally that induced spatiotemporal modulation instability can exist in a self-defocusing medium if the nonlinearity is noninstantaneous. We predict the growth rate as a function of the spatial and temporal frequencies of the modulation and the response time of the nonlinearity and confirm it by our experiments.
