We investigate the far field of a spatial dispersive shock wave generated from a Gaussian beam propagating in nonlinear nonlocal colloidal disordered media. The interplay between nonlinearity and structural randomness is quantified in terms of the threshold power for the occurrence of the shock wave.

Fig. 1

Beam propagation as observed from top fluorescence emission for three different input powers in the ordered case, cSiO2 = 0 (cRhB = 0.1mM), (a–c) and disordered case, cSiO2 = 0.03w/w (cRhB = 0.1mM), (d–f). Note that the propagation regime reported in panel (a) is linear since the laser power is too low to activate the nonlinear effect.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Far field intesity of the transmitted beam for different input powers P and different concentrations cRhB (ordered case). Superimposed curves give the ky = 0 section profile. Similarly to Fig. 1(a), here the top panels (a–c) show a linear regime since the laser power is too low to activate the nonlinear effect.

(a) Measured aperture angle vs laser power P in the ordered case for different cRhB concentrations; (b) P vs cRhB: the filled circles are the experimental threshold power as retrieved from panel (a) (dot-dashed lines is a guide for the eye).

Measured aperture angle θ vs laser power P for different SiO2 dispersions in two RhB solutions: (a) cRhB = 0.05mM and (b) cRhB = 0.1mM; (c) threshold power P vs disorder concentrations cSiO2 at fixed cRhB = 0.1mM: dots are the experimental data, dot dashed lines is a guide for the eye, dashed line is the boundary between shock and no shock regimes.
