Abstract

We study the modulation instability in a two-dimensional nonlinear single feedback system with a photonic lattice and reveal a sharp transition in the instability regimes as the lattice strength is increased. For a shallow lattice, the instability modes are enhanced parallel to the lattice wave vector, while in stronger lattices, these modes are suppressed.
