Abstrakt

The understanding of how and to what extend the cubic nonlinearity affects beam propagation and spatial soliton formation in quadratic media is of vital importance not only in fundamental nonlinear physics but also in the applied field of rewritable optical circuitry. All quadratic materials have an inherent cubic nonlinearity that becomes important at high intensities or when the fundamental wave (FW) and its second harmonic (SH) do not meet the phase-matching harmonic (SH) do not meet the phase-matching condition. This paper discusses beam propagation under type-I SHG conditions in lossless bulk χ(2) materials with a nonvanishing χ(3) nonlinearity.
