Observation of localized modes at phase slips in two-dimensional photonic lattices

Szameit, Alexander; Molina, Mario I; Heinrich, Matthias; Dreisow, Felix; Keil, Robert; Nolte, Stefan; Kivshar, Yuri


We experimentally study light localization at phase-slip waveguides and at the intersection of phase slips in a two-dimensional (2D) square photonic lattice. Such systems allow for the observation of a variety of effects, including the existence of spatially localized modes for low powers, the generation of strongly localized states in the form of discrete bulk and surface solitons, as well as a crossover between one-dimensional and 2D localization.
