Paper Abstract

We consider total internal reflection of a monochromatic plane wave from an isotropic nonlinear medium with cubic nonlinearity. Hodograph of the electric field is found from the expression for energy density of the field. Possible values of angle of incidence are found. Essential differences between waves in focusing and defocusing media are pointed out and discussed. It is shown that the phase of the refraction coefficient is a multi-valued function of the angle of incidence and power of the incident wave.
