Thermal control of the topological edge flow in nonlinear photonic lattices

Jung, Pawel S.; Pyrialakos, Georgios G.; Wu, Fan O.; Parto, Midya; Khajavikhan, Mercedeh; Krolikowski, Wieslaw; Christodoulides, Demetrios N.


The chaotic evolution resulting from the interplay between topology and nonlinearity in photonic systems generally forbids the sustainability of optical currents. Here, we systematically explore the nonlinear evolution dynamics in topological photonic lattices within the framework of optical thermodynamics. By considering an archetypical two-dimensional Haldane photonic lattice, we discover several prethermal states beyond the topological phase transition point and a stable global...[Show more]
