Paper Abstract

The total reflection effect of the weak signal pulse from the high-power reference pulse with another frequency is first demonstrated in the dispersive nonlinear medium. It is shown that as a result of the binary collision, signal pulse frequency shift occurs, propagation velocity changes and time delay takes place. The conditions of total internal reflection from moving inhomogeneity induced by pump pulse in nonlinear medium are found. The expression for the reflected wave frequency shift is obtained. The possibility of pulse reflection from bright solitons in cubic medium is considered.
