Abstract

The behavior of nonlinear waves guided by a film configuration with a nonlinear cladding is investigated. The intensity-dependent dielectric function of the cladding is characterized by saturation effects. The field patterns that arise are discussed, and the dispersion relations are derived. Several dispersion curves are plotted. The results are compared with those familiar from nonlinear guided-wave propagation along configurations with Kerr-like cladding dielectric functions.
