Paper Abstract

We study experimentally the behavior of 1D and 2D spatial solitons in a SBN61:Ce photorefractive crystal under drift nonlinearity. In this report, we show experimental observation of optical branching effect for 1D beams and anisotropic self-focusing effect for 2D beams when we applied an appropriate external electric field along the c- axis of the photorefractive crystal.
