Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate all-optical steering of arrays of dark spatial solitons. The arrays are generated by two intersecting plane waves in the regime of adiabatic amplification in a Kerr-like medium. The steering is achieved by changing the relative intensities of the beams. In addition, we show that beams guided in the soliton channels can also be scanned.
