Breathers in PT-symmetric optical couplers

Barashenkov, Igor; Suchkov, Sergey; Dmitriev, Sergey V; Sukhorukov, Andrey; Kivshar, Yuri


We show that parity-time- (PT-) symmetric coupled optical waveguides with gain and loss support localized oscillatory structures similar to the breathers of the classical φ4 model. The power carried by the PT breather oscillates periodically, switching b
