Paper Abstract

The combined effects of a large-scale (in comparison with wavelength) longitudinal periodicity and self-focusing on a Gaussian beam propagation through parabolic-index waveguide with Kerr nonlinearity is investigated analytically in the paraxial approximation of the scalar Helmholtz equation using an aberrationless model of self-focusing in which the beam remains Gaussian. The demonstrated possibility of controlling the beam in such waveguides can be useful for generation of temporal solitons and for design of various all-optical components.
