Paper Abstract

Leaky-wave type Wood's anomalies due to excitation of guided waves on the dynamic grating induced in the thin nonlinear liquid-crystal slab are studied. For the first time the existence of Wood's anomalies in carbon-dioxide laser radiation self-diffraction on a reflecting liquid-crystal cell is shown by theoretical and experimental investigation of excitation of surface polaritons in plus 2 and minus 3 diffraction orders and leaky interferometric modes in plus 1 and minus 2 diffraction orders.
