Abstract

Liquid-crystal light valves can control the orientation of a nematic layer under the independent or combined action of applied voltage and impinging light intensity; hence, they offer a unique environment for the propagation of spatial optical solitons or nematicons. We demonstrate nematicon excitation, propagation, and steering in photoconductive light valves.
