Abstract

The design of a simple all-optical spatial scanner, based on a propagating self-focused channel incident at an oblique angle to a nonlinear dielectric interface, is illustrated using the beam propagation method. The channel asymptotics are shown to be insensitive to the shape of the incident beam profile with the latter satisfying a simple area criterion.
