Abstract

We study self-channeling of light waves in a rotated cut of crystals of the 4<i>mm</i> and the 6<i>mm</i> classes, whose dominant mechanism is photorefractive diffusion nonlinearity. The existence of photorefractive line waves that can be guided along the edge of the crystal is suggested and analyzed.
