Abstract

This paper reports numerical simulations of beam propagation in polydiacetylene para-toluene sulfonate (PTS), using measured values for n2 and n3, and demonstrates stable self-trapping and a new phenomenon in which a Gaussian input beam evolves into an expanding spatial ring and interprets these results in the context of the variational model of nonlinear Gaussian beam propagation. It also shows preliminary experimental results suggesting the presence of ring formation.
