Empirical bifurcation analysis of optical pattern formation.

Abstract

The experimental characterization of pattern forming bifurcations is difficult, since the unstable solutions are generally not accessible in experiments. In nonlinear optics, a novel control scheme allows one to select and stabilize generic patterns and thus to track these solutions in parameter space. This Fourier space scheme is applied to a single… (More)
