Abstract:

Two major activities of this grant were to develop a generalized approach to the enhancement of nonlinear optical effects based upon slow-light propagation in artificial resonators and the study of nonlinear self-focusing in periodic arrays of photonic microcavities, thereby providing a mechanism for the formation of very narrow i.e. wavelength scale spatial solitons at very low powers.
