Engineering of multicolor spatial solitons with chirped-period quasi-phase-matching gratings in optical parametric amplification.


We demonstrate the excitation of solitons in a parametric amplifier with enhanced signal content through the use of a chirped-period quasi-phase-matching grating. This technique affords a low soliton threshold at the input end of a parametric amplifier, and the subsequent transformation to a desired soliton that exists at nonzero wave-vector mismatch… (More)
