Features and Applications of χ(2) Vector Spatial Solitons
Although nearly a quarter of a century has elapsed from the first theoretical prediction of quadratic optical solitons , a large interest has been conveyed to the topic only during the last decade , partially due to a mature understanding of χ(2) cascaded processes in second harmonic generation (SHG) . After the first experimental demonstration of quadratic spatial solitons (QSS’s) in KTP by Torruellas et al. , a considerable amount of theoretical as well as experimental work has been performed, as apparent in this Volume.
