Abstract

The characteristics of prism coupling of finite-width beams into nonlinear waveguides composed of media with diffusive nonlinearities (thermal, etc.) are calculated by including a one-dimensional diffusion equation for the nonlocal nonlinearity. The resulting longitudinal feedback leads to bistability, and the threshold value for the minimum diffusion length varies inversely with the angular detuning.
