Abstract

The propagation of TE guided waves excited at different points of their dispersion curve has been numerically traced down a thin film bounded by two identical self-focusing media. Several types of nonstationary field evolution have been investigated and identified as transitions between or oscillations around different branches of the dispersion curve.
