Abstract

This paper reports the outcome of comprehensive investigations to study the dynamics of the beam trapping in both bulk crystals and planar waveguides made of quadratic nonlinear media in second-harmonic generation configurations. It addressed and discussed the suitable experimental conditions required to form spatial solitary waves in critical phase-matching and quasi-phase-matching settings.
