Incoherent multi-gap optical solitons in nonlinear photonic lattices

Motzek, Kristian; Sukhorukov, Andrey; Kaiser, Friedemann; Kivshar, Yuri


We demonstrate numerically that partially incoherent light can be trapped in the spectral band gaps of a photonic lattice, creating partially incoherent multi-component spatial optical solitons in a self-defocusing nonlinear periodic medium.We find numerically such incoherent multi-gap optical solitons and discuss how to generate them in experiment by interfering incoherent light beams at the input of a nonlinear periodic medium.
