Dissipative photonic lattice solitons
Abbreviated Journal Title
SPATIAL SOLITONS; ARRAYS; Optics
We show that discrete dissipative optical lattice solitons are possible in waveguide array configurations that involve periodically patterned semiconductor optical amplifiers and saturable absorbers. The characteristics of these low-power soliton states are investigated, and their propagation constant eigenvalues are mapped on Floquet-Bloch band diagrams. The prospect of observing such low-power dissipative lattice solitons is discussed in detail. (C) 2004 Optical Society of America.
