Diffraction-managed solitons and nonlinear beam diffusion in modulated waveguide arrays Conference Paper uri icon


  • We present the first experimental observation of nonlinear beam diffusion and formation of diffraction-managed solitons in periodically-curved arrays of coupled optical waveguides created using femtosecond laser writing in silica glass, and titanium indiffusion in LiNbO3 crystals. © 2007 Optical Society of America.
