Nonlinear Tamm states and surface effects in periodic photonic structures

Kivshar, Yuri

Description

We present a brief overview of the basic concepts and important experimental observations of the effect of light localization near the surfaces of truncated periodic photonic structures. In particular, we discuss the formation of nonlinear localized modes and discrete surface solitons near the edges of nonlinear optical waveguide arrays and two-dimensional photonic lattices. We draw an analogy between the nonlineir surface optical modes and the surface Tamm states kown in the electronic theory....[Show more]
