Effect of nonlinear boundary conditions on nonlinear phenomena in optical resonators. Academic Article uri icon


  • The question of proper boundary conditions at the surface of a nonlinear medium is discussed. It is shown that the nonlinearity of the boundary conditions could have a significant effect for large fields. Thus the nonlinear boundary conditions significantly affect the transmission behavior near the upper bistability threshold.
