Abstract

Optical waveguides provide an efficient way of confining and propagating light with the additional advantage of allowing the observation of nonlinear effects at relatively low input powers. However, to create a steerable reconfigurable waveguide in a bulk medium, a different concept based on the propagation of self-guided beams or spatial solitons may be used. These two concepts were combined and applied to the problem of the generation of spatial solitons by using nonlinear guided modes of a nonlinear slab waveguide. The different types of single and multiple spatial solitons generated by this method are described, and the soliton parameters generated by the method are determined from numerical simulations.
