Spatial solitons in optically induced gratings.

Opt Lett 2003 May;28(9):710-2

Nonlinear Physics Group, Research School of Physical Sciences and Engineering, Australian National University, Canberra, ACT 0200, Australia.

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.
