Paper Abstract

Recently, energy transfer has been observed between two pulsed, degenerate laser beams copropagating almost collinearly into isotropic Kerr media with temporal relaxation. Theoretical calculations have been made which agree with the experimental data. This paper will briefly describe the experiment, and develop the theory which simulates the lab situation. The physical mechanism regulating this beam combination will also be discussed. Comparisons between the numerical simulations and the experimental data will also be presented.
