Paper Abstract

The chirping of a pulse propagating on a nonlinear media is nowadays a rather well studied phenomena and we are aware that requires an appreciable propagation length to develop. A nonlinear stack of finite dimension, does not have those dimensions. Therefore, chirping in this media is a rather new feature that deserves to be studied at considerable length given the greater importance that those structures have in photonics. We present a nonlinear analysis of a finite stack, nonlinear at each media and compare it with its analytically solvable linear case. The pulse propagation is discussed, in particular we demonstrate intensity dependence of the chirp as a distinctive nonlinear signature. We show two additional nonlinear characteristics: the nonlinear switching and the bistability.
