How does an inclined holding beam affect discrete modulational instability and solitons in nonlinear cavities?

Egorov, Oleg A; Lederer, Falk; Kivshar, Yuri

Description

We study light propagation in arrays of weakly coupled nonlinear cavities driven by an inclined holding beam.We show analytically that both discreteness and inclination of the driving field can dramatically change the conditions for modulational instability in discrete nonlinear systems. We find numerically the families of resting and moving dissipative solitons for an arbitrary inclination angle of the driving field, both in the discrete and a quasi-continuous limits. We analyze a...[Show more]

dc.description.abstractWe study light propagation in arrays of weakly coupled nonlinear cavities driven by an inclined holding beam.We show analytically that both discreteness and inclination of the driving field can dramatically change the conditions for modulational instability in discrete nonlinear systems. We find numerically the families of resting and moving dissipative solitons for an arbitrary inclination angle of the driving field, both in the discrete and a quasi-continuous limits. We analyze a crossover between resting and moving cavity solitons, and also observe novel features in the soliton collision.
