Paper Abstract

The analysis of optical nonlinear behavior in nematic liquid crystalline planar waveguides is presented. The analyzed orientational nonlinearity leads to unique properties which are not obtained in another types of nonlinearity. Phenomena observed in such waveguides are compared with classically analyzed Kerr-type nonlinearity. The theoretical results are confirmed by experimental data.
