Nonlinear propagation and electroacoustic phenomena in bounded media
Abstract
The problem of mode conversion induced by quadratic nonlinearities in a medium which is bounded and which is subject to the radiation pressure of an electromagnetic (EM) wave was studied. A nonlinear EM wave equation and a set of linearized hydrodynamic equations, which are coupled together through the radiation pressure of the EM waves, are approximately analyzed by allowing the EM amplitude to be a slowly varying function of space and time. The result of the analysis is a set of slowly varying nonlinear mode equations which contain derivatives to second order and a set of hydrodynamic equations which contain terms representing the effect of the radiation pressure.
