Nonlinear BLOCH-wave interaction and bragg scattering in optically induced lattices. Academic Article uri icon


  • We study, both theoretically and experimentally, the Bragg scattering of light in optically induced photonic lattices and reveal the key physical mechanisms which govern the nonlinear self-action of narrow beams under the combined effects of Bragg scattering and wave diffraction, allowing for selecting bands with different effective dispersion.
