Abstract

We show numerically and experimentally that spatial trapping can be induced in quadratic media even if the pump pulse’s duration is shorter than the group-delay mismatch between fundamental wave and second-harmonic components. The influence of phase mismatch and pulse power on the trapping effect is discussed. Spatial, temporal, and spectral behaviors that accompany self-trapped propagation are highlighted.
