Paper Abstract

New types of nonlinear optical systems that use the joint effects of Kerr-like nonlinearity, interference and diffraction in 2-D optical feedback are analyzed. We show that spatio- temporal instabilities in these systems can exist in the form of conditional instability. By varying several parameters of the optical system it is possible to control the nonlinear dynamics, thus creating different regimes of intermode interactions.
