Spatial Solitons in Optically Induced Gratings

Neshev, Dragomir; Kivshar, Yuri; Krolikowski, Wieslaw; Ostrovskaya, Elena


We study experimentally nonlinear localization effects in optically induced gratings created by interfering plane waves in a photorefractive crystal. We demonstrate the generation of spatial bright solitons similar to those observed in arrays of coupled optical waveguides. We also create pairs of out-of-phase solitons, which resemble twisted localized states in nonlinear lattices.
