Paper Abstract

In this work we present the experimental results of measurements of spatial solitons (nematicons) in chiral nematic liquid crystalline film. We measured the propagation of light beam at the distance of few millimeters and the nonlinear selffocusing was observed for a light power of order of few tenths of milliwats. The experimental results are in a good agreement with theoretical predictions.
