Abstract

We put forward the concept of reconfigurable structures optically induced by mutually incoherent nondiffracting Bessel beams in Kerr-type nonlinear media. We address collinear couplers and X junctions and show how one can tune the switching properties of such structures by varying the intensity of the Bessel beams.

Fig. 1

Switching in (a)–(c) two- and (d)–(f) three-core optically induced couplers. Output intensity distributions are shown at ξ L c . White contour curves are aids to the eye and show the positions of optically induced channels. In the two-core coupler the soliton was launched into the left-hand channel; in the three-core coupler it was launched into the right-hand channel. Input power (a) U = 1.56 , (b) 1.67, (c) 3.1, (d) 1.56, (e) 2.15, and (f) 2.68. Parameters: p = 5 , 2 η 0 = 3 , b lin = 10 .
