Optical self-switching of unidirectional distributively coupled waves

Prokhorov General Physics Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, ul. Vavilova 38, Moscow, 119991, Russian Federation

Theoretical and experimental fundamentals of the phenomenon of optical self-switching of unidirectional distributively coupled waves are presented. This waves represent a whole class of waves in optics: waves in tunnel-coupled optical waveguides, waves undergoing the Bragg diffraction, waves with different polarisations in an anisotropic (birefringent) waveguide or crystal, waves with different frequencies in a quadratically nonlinear medium, etc.
