Abstract

We demonstrate experimentally that spatial solitons in AlGaAs slab waveguides can be deflected by an electronically induced prism. We also show that a weak signal beam can be guided and steered by the solitons, thus demonstrating the feasibility of a dynamically reconfigurable optical interconnect.
