Abstract

The propagation of light in 5×5 and 7×7 cubic lattices of evanescently coupled waveguides is investigated for the first time, to the authors’ knowledge. The results reveal ideal discrete diffraction and demonstrate the excellent quality of the waveguide arrays, which were manufactured in fused silica by femtosecond-laser-induced refractive-index modifications.
