Solitonic lattices in photorefractive crystals Academic Article uri icon


  • Two-dimensional spatial solitonic lattices are generated and investigated experimentally and numerically in a Sr(x)Ba(1-x)Nb(2)O(6):Ce crystal. An enhanced stability of these lattices is achieved by exploiting the anisotropy of coherent soliton interaction, in particular the relative phase between soliton rows. The manipulation of individual soliton channels is achieved by the use of supplementary control beams.
