Title: Bloch domain walls in type II optical parametric oscillators

Abstract: Evidence of Bloch domain walls in nonlinear optical systems is given. These walls are found in the transverse fields of optical parametric oscillators when the polarization degree of freedom, the cavity birefringence, and (or) dichroism are taken into account. These domain walls arise spontaneously and exhibit defects where Bloch walls of different chirality join together. Two dynamic regimes are found: In the first one the vector field approaches a final homogeneous state, and in the other the walls are continually generated and annihilated. This dynamic behavior is caused by the fact that walls of opposite chirality move spontaneously with opposite velocity. © 2000 Optical Society of America.
