Light self-trapping in nematic liquid crystals

Miroslaw A. Karpierz, Gaetano Assanto

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review


    We review the most important achievements and recent progress in the area of light-beam self-localization into optical spatial solitons in reorientational molecular media, with specific focus on nematic liquid crystals in planarly aligned, twisted and chiral arrangements.
