Stabilization of counterpropagating solitons by photonic lattices. Academic Article uri icon


  • We report on the stabilization of inherently unstable counterpropagating photorefractive spatial solitons by the use of one- and two-dimensional photonic lattices. We numerically investigate the dependence of the instability dynamics on period and amplitude of the lattice and present experimental verification for the dynamic stabilization of the bi-directional soliton state.
