Self-focusing and self-trapping in new types of Kerr media with large nonlinearities.

Abstract

Self-focusing and self-trapping of light in common liquid media such as Chinese tea, Chinese herbal medicine, and solutions of chlorophyll have been observed. These materials are found to be new types of natural Kerr media, and their nonlinear coefficients have been determined. Laser-heating-induced self-phase modulation in these materials has also been observed.
