Abstract

An analytical description connected with a numerical calculation of the propagation of self-trapped laser beams in a polymethylmethacrylate matrix containing phenanthrenequinone molecules is presented. A theoretical model for the spatial distribution of boundary optical waves is developed in dependence on characteristic beam parameters.
