Linear guidance properties of solitonic Y-junction waveguides

  • Published 2000
A linear Y-junction waveguide device is designed using a generalization of the theory of solitonic potentials for the linear SchroÈ dinger equation. This Y-junction device, unlike other adiabatic Y-junctions, has the advantage that it may be directly written into a planar medium with homogeneous saturable nonlinearity by a strong light beam. The generalized… CONTINUE READING
