Fig. 1

The effective index versus guided-wave power for nonlinear guided-wave solutions obtained when two self-focusing media bound a thin guiding film. The solid region corresponds to stable stationary waves, and the dashed curve to unstable waves. The numbers 1–8 identify positions for which the evolution of the guided waves with propagation distance is shown in Fig. 2.
