Abstract

The interaction of optical beams in bidispersive nonlinear media with self-focusing nonlinearity is numerically investigated. Under proper conditions, the interaction of spatially separated beams can lead to the creation of two prominent filaments along the other spatial or temporal dimension and, thus, to an effective spatiospatial or spatiotemporal exchange. This X-wave generation-based effect could potentially be exploited in optical realizations of spatial or spatiotemporal filtering.
