Abstract

Abstract Nonlinear self-focusing of the laser beam in waveguide with nematic homeotropically aligned liquid crystalline layer is analysed theoretically and observed experimentally. The nonlinearity is caused by the reorientational effect and the stable self-trapped beams are created by the spatially periodic reorientation in the liquid crystalline layer.
