Experimental observation of the optical self-switching of unidirectional distributively coupled waves


Prokhorov General Physics Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, ul. Vavilova 38, Moscow, 119942, Russian Federation

Theoretical fundamentals of the phenomenon of optical self-switching of unidirectional distributively coupled waves (UDCW) with the linear coupling coefficient have been given in Ref. [1]. The present review deals with experimental examination of this striking phenomenon and pulse self-switching events along with the theory of UDCW self-switching in the case of a nonlinear coupling coefficient.
