Accelerating finite energy Airy beams.

- Georgios A. Siviloglou, D. Christodoulides
- Physics, Medicine
- Optics letters
- 15 April 2007

We investigate the acceleration dynamics of quasi-diffraction-free Airy beams in both one- and two-dimensional configurations. We show that this class of finite energy waves can retain their… Expand

Observation of accelerating Airy beams.

- G. Siviloglou, J. Broky, A. Dogariu, D. Christodoulides
- Physics, Medicine
- Physical review letters
- 16 September 2007

We report the first observation of Airy optical beams. This intriguing class of wave packets, initially predicted by Berry and Balazs in 1979, has been realized in both one- and two-dimensional… Expand

Observation of PT-symmetry breaking in complex optical potentials.

- A. Guo, G. Salamo, +5 authors D. Christodoulides
- Physics, Medicine
- Physical review letters
- 27 August 2009

In 1998, Bender and Boettcher found that a wide class of Hamiltonians, even though non-Hermitian, can still exhibit entirely real spectra provided that they obey parity-time requirements or PT… Expand

Discrete self-focusing in nonlinear arrays of coupled waveguides.

- D. Christodoulides, R. Joseph
- Physics, Medicine
- Optics letters
- 1 September 1988

We show that a nonlinear array of coupled waveguides can exhibit discrete self-focusing that in the continuum approximation obeys the so-called nonlinear Schrödinger equation. This process has much… Expand

Unidirectional invisibility induced by PT-symmetric periodic structures.

- Z. Lin, H. Ramézani, T. Eichelkraut, T. Kottos, H. Cao, D. Christodoulides
- Physics, Medicine
- Physical review letters
- 25 May 2011

Parity-time (PT) symmetric periodic structures, near the spontaneous PT-symmetry breaking point, can act as unidirectional invisible media. In this regime, the reflection from one end is diminished… Expand

- Physics, Medicine
- Physical review letters
- 28 April 2007

We experimentally investigate the evolution of linear and nonlinear waves in a realization of the Anderson model using disordered one-dimensional waveguide lattices. Two types of localized… Expand

Discretizing light behaviour in linear and nonlinear waveguide lattices

- D. Christodoulides, F. Lederer, Y. Silberberg
- Physics, Medicine
- Nature
- 14 August 2003

Light propagating in linear and nonlinear waveguide lattices exhibits behaviour characteristic of that encountered in discrete systems. The diffraction properties of these systems can be engineered,… Expand
