Abstract

Numerical results for the time-resolved characteristics of stationary pulsed beams that propagate in Kerr-like nonlinear channel waveguides are reported for what is to our knowledge the first time. In the calculation, both instantaneous and finite response times of the nonlinearity are considered. Some interesting phenomena relevant to the intrapulse switching between an ordinary guided mode and a solitonlike mode are found and discussed.
