Discrete light bullets in two-dimensional photonic lattices: Collision scenarios

Mihalache, Dumitru; Mazilu, Dumitru; Lederer, Falk; Kivshar, Yuri


We report systematic results of collisions between discrete spatiotemporal optical solitons in two-dimensional photonic lattices. We show that the outcomes of collisions strongly depend on the initial soliton parameters, such as their input amplitudes (energies) and their transverse velocities. Four generic outcomes are identified in the study of collisions between discrete light bullets located in the corner, at the edge, and in the center of the photonic lattice: (a) merger of both low and...[Show more]
