Realizing curved nonlinear photonic caustic lattices by tailored optical catastrophes

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Controlling higher-order cusp and swallowtail catastrophes allows realizing caustic lattices in nonlinear materials. We examine their light guiding features and functionality as linear beam splitter, and observe the formation of Pearcey solitons.
