Spatiotemporal control of light by Bloch-mode dispersion in multi-core fibers. Academic Article uri icon


  • We study theoretically the dispersion properties of Bloch modes and nonlinearly-induced defect states in two-dimensional waveguide arrays. We define the conditions for achieving anomalous group-velocity dispersion and discuss possibilities for generation of spatiotemporal solitons.
