Soliton dynamics in deformable nonlinear lattices
We describe wave propagation and soliton localization in photonic lattices, which are induced in a nonlinear medium by an optical interference pattern, taking into account the inherent lattice deformations at the soliton location. We obtain exact analytical solutions and identify the key factors defining soliton mobility, including the effects of gap merging and lattice imbalance, underlying the differences with discrete and gap solitons in conventional photonic structures.
