Spatial Optical Solitons in Nonlinear Photonic Crystals

Sukhorukov, Andrey; Kivshar, Yuri


We study spatial optical solitons in a one-dimensional nonlinear photonic crystal created by an array of thin-film nonlinear waveguides, the so-called Dirac-comb nonlinear lattice. We analyze modulational instability of the extended Bloch-wave modes and also investigate the existence and stability of bright, dark, and "twisted" spatially localized modes in such periodic structures. Additionally, we discuss both similarities and differences of our general results with the simplified models of...[Show more]
