Light propagation in optically induced photonic structures


We present a highly flexible optical induction approach based on liquid crystal spatial light modulators that allows for developing arbitrary lattice structures. In this context, formation of complex nondiffracting photonic lattices, structures and superlattices is shown. The technique additionally enables an intuitive way of randomization, offering the necessary conditions for Anderson localization. We further used the high nonlinear response of these systems to experimentally demonstrate soliton oscillations in a parabolic potential landscape.
