Experiments on Gaussian beams and vortices in optically induced photonic lattices

Chen, Zhigang; Martin, Hector; Bezryadina, Anna; Neshev, Dragomir; Christodoulides, Demetrios N.; Kivshar, Yuri


We investigate experimentally the propagation of fundamental Gaussian beams and vortices in a two-dimensional photonic lattice optically induced with partially coherent light. We focus on soliton–lattice interactions and vortex–lattice interactions when the lattice is operated in a nonlinear regime. In this case a host of novel phenomena is demonstrated, including soliton-induced lattice dislocation–deformation, soliton hopping and slow-down, and creation of structures akin to optical polarons....[Show more]
