    A small-signal gain analysis of the planar dielectric Cherenkov maser is presented. The analysis results in a Pierce gain solution, with three traveling-wave modes. The analysis shows that the dielectric Cherenkov maser has a remarkable broadband tuning ability near cutoff, while maintaining...

    We report the observation of collisions between mutually incoherent, one-dimensional, bright, steady-state photorefractive screening solitons. Using the theory of planar dielectric waveguides together with the theory of photorefractive screening solitons, we explain how the collisions depend on...
