Abstract

A numerical study of the reflectivity at a nonlinear interface is presented. We analyze situations in which the self-reflected wave appears inside the nonlinear material for various values of the incidence angle. The change of the incidence angle makes it possible to study the range of nonlinear dielectric functions for which the self-reflected wave may appear.
