We demonstrate, both experimentally and theoretically, excitation-dependent self-bending of spatial solitons in nematic liquid crystals. The observed deflection is explained by nonlinear changes in walk-off, as induced by the rotation of the optic axis via power-driven reorientation.

Abstract

We demonstrate, both experimentally and theoretically, excitation-dependent self-bending of spatial solitons in nematic liquid crystals. The observed deflection is explained by nonlinear changes in walk-off, as induced by the rotation of the optic axis via power-driven reorientation.
