# Switch between the Types of the Symmetry Breaking Bifurcation in Optically Induced Photorefractive Rotational Double-Well Potential

@article{Chen2012SwitchBT, title={Switch between the Types of the Symmetry Breaking Bifurcation in Optically Induced Photorefractive Rotational Double-Well Potential}, author={Guihua Chen and Jianxiong Wu and Zhihuan Luo}, journal={Journal of the Physical Society of Japan}, year={2012}, volume={82}, pages={034401-034401} }

We study the possibility of switching the types of symmetry breaking bifurcation (SBB) in the cylinder shell waveguide with helical double-well potential along propagation direction. This model is described by the one-dimensional nonlinear Schrodinger (NLS) equation. The symmetry- and antisymmetry-breakings can be caused by increasing the applied voltage onto the waveguide in the self-focusing and -defocusing cases, respectively. In the self-focusing case, the type of SBB can be switched from…
