Abstract

We analyze spatiotemporal light localization at the interface separating two different periodic photonic lattices. We demonstrate the existence of a novel class of continuous–discrete spatiotemporal solitons propagating along the interface, including hybrid staggered–unstaggered discrete light bullets with tails belonging to spectral gaps of different types.
