Soliton steering by longitudinal modulation of the nonlinearity in waveguide arraysFaculty of Informatics - Papers (Archive)
AbstractWe show how discrete solitary waves in one and two-dimensional waveguide arrays can be steered across the lattice via the introduction of a longitudinal periodic modulation of the nonlinear response. Through parametric energy transfer from the modulation to the solitary wave, the latter can increase its width and overcome the Peierls-Nabarro potential to propagate freely.
