Giant Goos-Hänchen shifts and radiation-induced trapping are studied at the planar boundary separating two focusing Kerr media within the framework of the Helmholtz theory. The analysis, valid for all angles of incidence, reveals that interfaces exhibiting linear external refraction can also accommodate both phenomena. Numerical evidence of these effects is(More)
The behaviour of optical solitons at planar nonlinear boundaries is a problem rich in intrinsically nonparaxial regimes that cannot be fully addressed by theories based on the nonlinear Schrödinger equation. For instance, large propagation angles are typically involved in external refraction at interfaces. Using a recently proposed generalised Snell's law(More)
The refraction of dark solitons at a planar boundary separating two defocusing Kerr media is simulated and analyzed, for the first time (to our knowledge). Analysis is based on the nonlinear Helmholtz equation and is thus valid for any angle of incidence. A new law, governing refraction of black solitons, is combined with one describing bright soliton(More)
Refraction of black and gray solitons at boundaries separating different defocusing Kerr media is analyzed within a Helmholtz framework. A universal nonlinear Snell's law is derived that describes gray soliton refraction, in addition to capturing the behavior of bright and black Kerr solitons at interfaces. Key regimes, defined by beam and interface(More)
Soliton breakup occurring at the planar boundary separating two Kerr focusing and defocusing media is analyzed within the framework of the Helmholtz theory where the full angular content of the problem is preserved. We show that the number of solitons resulting from bright soliton breakup depends on the soliton angle of incidence, contrary to the(More)

Spatial soliton refraction at interfaces separating two nonlinear media has traditionally been studied in terms of the paraxial Nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) Equation, thus restricting the validity of results to vanishingly small angles of incidence [1]. This limitation is overcome within a Helmholtz nonparaxial framework [2], where a Nonlinear Helmholtz(More)
