Abstract

The concept of the guiding-center walking soliton is introduced for examination of self-trapping of light in quadratic nonlinear media in materials with large Poynting vector walk-off. It is shown that robust guiding-center solitons exist in properly constructed tandem structures. The goal is to form quadratic solitons with reduced light intensities.
