Abstract

The recent proposal of optical induction for producing nonlinear photonic lattices has revolutionized the study of nonlinear waves in waveguide arrays. In particular, it enabled the first observation of (2+1) dimensional lattice solitons, which were the first 2D solitons observed in any nonlinear periodic system in nature. Since then, progress has been rapid, with many fundamental discoveries made within the past two years. Here, we review our theoretical and experimental contributions to this effort.

1D discrete or lattice solitons from the first band (a) 1D transmission spectrum showing the nonlinear propagation constants for the fundamental LS (base of the BZ zone) and spatial gap soliton (edge of BZ zone). (b) The fundamental LS has an in-phase structure that requires a self-focusing nonlinearity (positive defect). (c) The first-band gap soliton has a staggered phase structure that requires a defocusing nonlinearity (negative defect).
