Abstract

We report the observation of deflection of optical solitons generated in the frequency doubling of light beams containing edgelike topological amplitude and phase dislocations. The angular deflection of the solitons was found to be controllable through the position of the dislocation. The experiments were conducted near phase matching in a bulk potassium titanyl phosphate crystal pumped with picosecond light pulses at 1064 nm.

SH light observed when the input beam contains the edge dislocation located at the symmetry axis of the input beam at different values of the peak input power. Conditions: (a) 50 kW, (b) 60 kW, (c) 70 kW, (d) 90 kW. All data shown in this Letter were taken near exact phase matching and with zero power imbalance between the input FF beams.

Fig. 2

SH light pattern observed when the FF input beam contains an edge dislocation at different positions x0. The distance x0 is measured after the glass plate, before the lens that focuses into the crystal; when x0=0, the edge is at the beam center. Conditions: (a) x0=-0.3 cm, (b) -0.2 cm, (c) -0.1 cm, (d) 0, (e) +0.1 cm, (f) +0.2 cm, (g) +0.3 cm. In all cases P=90 kW. The inset in each image shows the position of the edge dislocation at the input FF beam.

Fig. 3

Observed soliton position as a function of the location of the glass plate, with P=90 kW. For this peak power, only when the edge is in an on-axis position, two solitons are generated. The zero of the output soliton position is set in the center between the two solitons generated.

Typical simulated evolution of the SH beam inside the quadratic crystal under the conditions of the experiments for different input powers and positions of the edge when the input has a dislocation featuring a H1,0 Hermite–Gaussian shape: a1,2ξ=0=A0x-x0exp-x2+y2. (a) P130 kW, edge off-axis, and walk-off along the x axis: δ2x=δ3x=0.5, δ2y=δ3y=0. (b) P130 kW, edge on-axis, and walk-off along the x axis: δ2x=δ3x=0.5, δ2y=δ3y=0. (c) P130 kW, edge on-axis, and walk-off along the y axis: δ2x=δ3x=0, δ2y=δ3y=0.5. (d) Same as in (b) but for P100 kW. In all cases β=0 and η=18 µm.
