Strong optical self-focusing effect in coherent light scattering with

Chengjie Zhu, L. Deng, E. W. Hagley, G. X. Huang
We present a theoretical investigation of optical self-focusing effects in light scattering with condensates. Using long (>200 \mu s), red-detuned pulses we show numerically that a non-negligible self-focusing effect is present that causes rapid optical beam width reduction as the scattered field propagates through a medium with an inhomogeneous density distribution. The rapid growth of the scattered field intensity and significant local density feedback positively to further enhance the wave generation process and condensate compression, leading to highly efficient collective atomic recoil motion.
