Generic Features of Modulational Instability in Nonlocal Kerr Media
The modulational instability (MI) of plane waves in nonlocal Kerr media is studied for a general response function. Several generic properties are proven mathematically, with emphasis on how new gain bands are formed through a bifurcation process when the degree of nonlocality, σ, passes certain bifurcation values and how the bandwidth and maximum of each individual gain band depends on σ. The generic properties of the MI gain spectrum, including the bifurcation phenomena, are then demonstrated...[Show more]
