Abstract

The fundamental mechanisms responsible for the supraoptical nonlinearity of nematic liquid crystals has been presented. These supranonlinear nematic crystalline materials enable a new generation of unique and versatile all-optical devices operating with unprecedented low threshold power. Some fundamental processes such as spatial soliton formation and propagation have also been studied with the help of nonlinear nematic films.
