Paper Abstract

We analyze propagation of ultra-short light pulses in transparent, dispersive, nonlinear media. A general formula for a femtosecond wavepacket evolution in birefringent materials is presented and applied to specific problems. Theoretical and experimental results for wavepacket distortion by lenses, wavepacket rotation in birefringent media, group velocity matching in sum frequency generation, and ultra-short pulse propagation in birefringent crystals are presented. Splitting of femtosecond wavepackets in dispersive Kerr media is also discussed.
