Paper Abstract

The steady-state bright spatial solitons have been realized in a planar photorefractive strontium-barium niobate waveguide for visible light, ranging from 514.5 to 780 nm. The build-up time of the steady-state condition was about 1 s. For the wavelength of 1047 nm, the strong self-focusing of a light beam was observed. In the time scale of several tens of milliseconds the transient self-trapping of red light was observed, which corresponds to the regime of quasi-steady-state solitons. The interaction of the steady- state spatial solitons has also been demonstrated at He-Ne laser wavelengths.
