Abstract

We demonstrate the formation of (1+1) - and (2+1) -dimensional solitons in photorefractive CdZnTe:V, exploiting the intensity-resonant behavior of the space-charge field. We control the resonance optically, facilitating a 10-μs soliton formation times with very low optical power.

  19. Note the difference from the screening nonlinearity which supports solitons, for which the free-charge concentration at illuminated regions increases.
  20. In our CdZnTe crystals, LE/KLD2≅200, where LE and LD are the drift and diffusions lengths, 1/K is taken as half the solitons’ FWHM. This indicates that the solitons form well inside the drift regime.

  23. This self-bending is much larger than that of screening solitons, as it results from the nature of the resonant nonlinearity and not from diffusion fields.4–6
