Single evolution equation describing nonlinear dynamics of nonlocal optical medium under two-wave mixing
Sprache des Titels:
In this Letter we study theoretically the interaction of optical waves in nonlinear dynamical medium, i.e. medium with relaxation. Taking into account the relaxation of the photoinduced nonlinearity we derive a single evolution equation, namely the nonlinear Schrödinger equation with coefficients depending on parameters, for the case of degenerate two-wave mixing at the reflection geometry in bulk Kerr-like medium possessing a nonlocal nonlinear response. All coefficients of the single evolution equation for our system are written out explicitly in terms of initial parameters. This is the first analytical study of the evolution of nonlinear dynamical medium under the action of two wave mixing; usually, it is studied numerically or experimentally making use of some empirical assumptions. We briefly discuss various possible scenarios of energy transport in the frame of the novel equation.
