Observation of two-dimensional nonlocal gap solitons

Rasmussen, Per Dalgaard; Bennet, Francis H.; Neshev, Dragomir N.; Sukhorukov, Andrey A.; Rosberg, Christian R.; Krolikowski, Wieslaw; Bang, Ole; Kivshar, Yuri S.


We demonstrate, both theoretically and experimentally, the existence of nonlocal gap solitons in two-dimensional periodic photonic structures with defocusing thermal nonlinearity. We employ liquid-infiltrated photonic crystal fibers and show how the system geometry can modify the effective response of a nonlocal medium and the properties of two-dimensional gap solitons.
