Paper Abstract

The interaction of light beams and pulses with strongly and weakly nonlinear planar and optical fibre waveguide structures is described. A critique of the predictions of optical bistability/hysteresis, based upon plane waves, is given and a model that builds memory into the calculation is briefly indicated. Several structures are considered and the relevance of the solutions for strongly nonlinear fibres to the stability of the nonlinear field is demonstrated. The behaviour of narrow pulses in birefringent optical fibres is described and full details of the power dependence of the polarisation are given.
