Paper Abstract

We review third-order nonlinear guided wave phenomena in planar optical waveguides. The phenomena to be discussed include: propagation effects, e.g., stability of the nonlinear guided waves, effects of linear absorption, nonlinear saturation, multi-soliton emission and the external excitation of these new waves with flux-dependent field distributions. We also present recent numerical studies of the nonlinear dispersion curve and electromagnetic field distribution of nonlinear surface-guided waves in a semi-infinite superlattice structure in contact with a semi-infinite nonlinear optical substrate.
