Discrete photonics in waveguide arrays

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

In homogeneous arrays of coupled waveguides, Floquet–Bloch waves are known to travel freely across the waveguides. We introduce a systematic discussion of the built-in patterning of the coupling constant between neighboring waveguides. Key patterns provide functions such as redirecting, guiding, and focusing these waves, up to nonlinear all-optical routing. This opens the way to light control in a functionalized discrete space, i.e., discrete photonics.
