Modulational instability of a strip beam in a bulk type I quadratic medium
Abbreviated Journal Title
SOLITARY WAVES; NONLINEARITY; SOLITONS; Optics
The evolution of a strip (one-dimensional) fundamental beam with propagation distance owing to spatial modulational instabilities was analyzed in a quadratic medium near type I phase matching. We obtained the gain coefficient for the modulational instability and showed that the wave evolves into a clean periodic sequence of solitary waves and does not reproduce the incident beam.
