Analysis of Occurrence Conditions for Spatially Inhomogeneous Structures of Light Waves in Optical Information Transmission Systems


A model of distributed information carriers in the form of stable spatially inhomogeneous structures in optical and fiber-optical communication systems is considered. We study the conditions for the occurrence of such stable spatially inhomogeneous structures of the light wave of the generator of the optical radiation. The formation of inhomogeneous structures that occur in a plane orthogonal to the direction of the wave propagation is provided by a thin layer of a nonlinear medium and a two-dimensional lagging feedback loop with the rotation operator of the spatial coordinates of the light wave in the emission plane of the optical generator. In the space of the main parameters of the generator (a control parameter, the angle of rotation of the spatial coordinates, and the magnitude of the delay), the areas of the generation of stable spatially inhomogeneous structures are constructed and the mechanisms of their occurrence are analyzed.
