Counterpropagating surface solitons in two-dimensional photorefractive lattices

Jovic, Dragana; Kivshar, Yuri; Jovanovic, R; Belic, Milivoj


We study interaction of counterpropagating beams in truncated two-dimensional photonic lattices induced optically in photorefractive crystals, and demonstrate the existence of counterpropagating surface solitons localized in the lattice corners and at the edges. We display intriguing dynamical properties of such composite optical beams and reveal that the lattice surface provides a strong stabilization effect on the beam propagation. We also observe dynamical instabilities for stronger...[Show more]
