Optical Nonlinearity in Liquid Crystalline Optical Waveguides
Languages of publication
The analysis of optical orientational nonlinearity in nematic liquid crystalline planar waveguides is presented. The analyzed nonlinearity leads to unique properties that are not observed in other types of nonlinear waveguides. Theoretical results are confirmed by experimental data obtained in liquid crystalline directional couplers and in the self-focusing effect observed in the planar liquid crystalline waveguides.
