Borrowing ideas used in nonlinear optical communication, we propose such a bending along any preassigned curve or surface, controlled by the boundary population inversion of atoms in an Erbium doped medium. The optical beam generated in a nonlinear Kerr medium and transmitted through a doped resonant medium preserving its shape as an accelerating soliton, predicted here based on exact… Expand

Experimental observation of self-accelerating beams in quadratic nonlinear media.
The experimental observation of 1D and 2D self-accelerating nonlinear beams in quadratic media shows that the intensity peaks of the first and second harmonics are asynchronous with respect to one another, but the coupled harmonics exhibit joint acceleration within the nonlinear medium. Expand

The results show that a soliton of short pulse width can maintain its pulse shape well in cascaded distributed amplifiers with a proper doping density, but an optical filter between the amplifiers is required for maintenance of the neighboring soliton separation. Expand
