Linear X-wave generation by means of cross-phase modulation in Kerr media. Academic Article uri icon


  • We exploit cross-phase modulation by a strong driving pulse onto a weaker probe pulse at a different wavelength to induce the formation of an X wave possessing the typical nondispersive and nondiffractive propagation properties.
