Exact solutions of optical pulse propagation in nonlinear meta-materials

Regular Article


An analytical and simulation based method has been used to exactly solve the nonlinear wave propagation in bulk media exhibiting frequency dependent dielectric susceptibility and magnetic permeability. The method has been further extended to investigate the intensity distribution in a nonlinear meta-material with negative refractive index where both ε and μ are dispersive and negative in nature.
