Pulse splitting of self-focusing-beams in normally dispersive media

    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearch


    The influence of the normal group-velocity dispersion on anisotropic self-focusing beams in nonlinear Kerr media is studied analytically. It is shown that a light pulse self-focusing in the presence of normal dispersion is split up into several small-scale cells preventing a catastrophic collapse. The theoretical explanation of this splitting process is revealed.
