14 May 2018 Analysis of the characteristics of the airy beam off-shooting soliton
Author Affiliations +
We analyze the nonlinear propagation of a one dimensional Airy beam inside a photorefractive medium. Under nonlinear focusing conditions, the Airy beam splits into a weak accelerating structure and a soliton-like beam called ”off-shooting soliton”. Experimental measurements and numerical results related to the soliton-like structure are compared to conventional gaussian solitons and find good agreement in terms of profile, width and amplitude. We demonstrate that its profile is also preserved through propagation over long distances. Finally we identify the different parameters for generating the ideal Airy beam off-shooting soliton i.e. the one closest to the conventional theoretical soliton.
