We investigate Airy-soliton interactions in self-defocusing media with PT potentials in one transverse dimension. We discuss different potentials in which the interacting beams with different phases are launched into the media at different separation distances. During interactions, there exist a primary collision region and a relaxation region accompanied by continuous interaction with the dispersed Airy tail. In the relaxation region, the beams exist as soliton-like and breathers-like…

Rotation and oscillation of gap vortex solitons in optically induced square photonic lattices with a self-focusing nonlinearity

We demonstrate the rotation and oscillation of the single-charged vortex (SCV) and double-charged vortex (DCV) in two-dimensional (2D) optically induced square photonic lattices under single-site



Airy-soliton interactions in Kerr media.

We investigate and analyze temporal soliton interactions with a dispersive truncated Airy pulse traveling in a nonlinear fiber at the same center wavelength (or frequency), via split step Fourier

Diffusion-trapped Airy beams in photorefractive media.

The first experimental observation of self-trapped Airy beams in a nonlinear medium is reported, with asymmetric action of two-wave mixing supporting the asymmetric intensity profile of the Airy states, with a balance that is independent of the beam intensity.

Bright spatial solitons in defocusing Kerr media with PT-symmetric potentials

We show that defocusing Kerr media with parity-time-symmetric potentials can support one- and two-dimensional bright spatial solitons. These solitons are found to be stable over the wide range where

Effect of Kerr nonlinearity on an Airy beam

The effect of Kerr nonlinearity on an Airy beam is investigated by using the nonlinear Schroedinger equation. Based on the moments method, the evolution of the Airy beam width in the rms sense is

Persistence and breakdown of Airy beams driven by an initial nonlinearity.

It is shown that an Airy beam initially driven by a self-defocusing nonlinearity experiences anomalous diffraction and can maintain its shape in subsequent propagation, but its intensity pattern and acceleration cannot persist when driven by an self-focusing non linearity.

Acceleration control of Airy beams with optically induced photonic lattices

We analyze how an optically induced photonic lattice affects and modifies the acceleration of Airy beams. Various conditions for the propagation and existence of Airy beams are considered in both

Propagation of an Airy-Gaussian beam in defected photonic lattices

We investigate numerically that a finite Airy-Gaussian (AiG) beam varies its trajectory and shape in defected photonic lattices. Propagation properties and beam self-bending are controlled with

Self-accelerating optical beams in highly nonlocal nonlinear media.

We find self-accelerating beams in highly nonlocal nonlinear optical media, and show that their propagation dynamics is strongly affected by boundary conditions. Specifically for the thermal optical

Improved intrapulse raman scattering control via asymmetric airy pulses.

This work experimentally demonstrates the possibility of tuning the frequency of a laser pulse via the use of an Airy pulse-seeded soliton self-frequency shift, bringing about unique advantages in terms of both efficient frequency tuning and feasibility, along with the generation and control of multicolor Raman solitons with enhanced tunability.

Generation of Airy solitary-like wave beams by acceleration control in inhomogeneous media.

It is demonstrated that by controlling the gradient strength of the medium it is possible to reduce to zero their acceleration, and to invert the sign of the acceleration of the beam.
