Paper Abstract

We study the dynamics of beams propagating in a planar waveguide with Kerr-type nonlinearity where a Bragg grating is written and diffraction is taken under consideration. The interaction of the forward field with the backscattered one due to the presence of the grating is considered both in the case of planar waves, and in the case of pulse propagation. Our results are demonstrated via numerical simulation of the governing propagation equations.
