Interactions of Self-Localised Optical Wavepackets in Reorientational Soft Matter

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The interaction of optical solitary waves in nematic liquid crystals, nematicons and vortices, with other nematicons and localised structures, such as refractive index changes, is reviewed. Such interactions are shown to enable simple routing schemes as a basis for all-optical guided wave signal manipulation.
