Realization of reflectionless potentials in photonic lattices

Szameit, Alexander; Dreisow, Felix; Heinrich, Matthias; Nolte, Stefan; Sukhorukov, Andrey


We realize experimentally a true reflectionless potential, which facilitates nonresonant unity transmission for all incident waves and at the same time supports localized modes. We utilize arrays of evanescently coupled optical waveguides, where a particular modulation of the transverse waveguide separations provides a physical realization of reflectionless Ablowitz-Ladik soliton potentials.
