Interaction Of A Light Beam With Light-Induced Photonic Lattices
The experimental observation of a single soliton interacting with a nonlinear waveguide lattice was reported. Such interaction leads to transverse velocity slow-down of the soliton itself, as well as to a host of new phenomena including lattice dislocation, lattice deformation, and creation of optical wave structures that were analogous to polarons in solid state physics. As such, the results paved way to observe similar phenomena in other relevant discrete nonlinear systems such as Bose-Einstein condensates.
