Soliton Complexes and Flat-top Nonlinear Modes in Optical Lattices
We describe a continuous analog of the quasirectangular flat-top nonlinear modes earlier found for discrete nonlinear models. We show that these novel nonlinear modes can be understood as multi-soliton complexes with either in-phase or out-of-phase neighboring solitons trapped by the periodic potential of the lattice. We demonstrate a link between the flat-top states and the truncated nonlinear Bloch waves, and discuss how these nonlinear localized modes can be monitored experimentally in...[Show more]
