Time dependence of soliton formation in planar cells of nematic liquid crystals

Abstract

Spatial optical solitons can be observed in bulk nematic-liquid-crystal cells with an entrance window and a bias voltage applied over the cell to enhance the optical nonlinear effect of laser-induced molecular reorientation. The soliton-induced waveguide is observed in transmission by use of a second light source and crossed polarizers. This setup allows us… (More)
