Double-slit diffraction in self-defocusing nonlinear media with nonlocal response

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We study experimentally double-slit diffraction in a self-defocusing nonlocal medium. By varying slit separation and distance to boundaries, we find that nonlocality allows beams to attract and repel from walls.
