In this talk, we report both theoretically and experimentally

dipole and vector solitons

in a 2D photonic lattice


Dipole solitons in a 2d lattice
Dipole solitons in a 2D lattice experimentally

Theoretical model:

Here U: electric field; z: propagation distance;

E0 : applied DC field; D: lattice spacing;

I0: lattice intensity; r33: electro-optic coefficient;

k0= 2p/l0; k1= k0 ne;

always unstable


Note: experimentally

the above dipole solitons arise due to a balance of

discrete diffraction

nonlinearity, and

lobe interactions

They can not exist without the lattice.

If we make the two beams of the dipole incoherent,

and launch into the same lattice site,

then we can study vector lattice solitons

2D vector lattice solitons: theory experimentally

Vector solitons can be derived from scalar ones by a polarization rotation:

(x, y) : scalar lattice soliton;

Scalar 2D lattice solitons have been studied before:

Efremidis, et al. PRL 2004

Conclusions
Conclusions experimentally

  • 1. We have demonstrated the formation of dipole,

  • quadrupole, vector, and dipole-like vector solitons in a

  • 2D photonic lattice for the first time.

  • 2. These solitons arise due to a balance of discrete

  • diffraction, nonlinearity, and lobe interactions.

  • 3. These solitons are stable in certain parameter regimes.
