    Torner Sabata, Lluís; Torruellas, William; Stegeman, George; Menyuk, Curtis (1995-09)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We show numerically the mutual dragging and locking together of intense fundamental and second-harmonic light beams propagating in second-order nonlinear media, and we discuss the potential applications of such effects for ...

    Article
    Open Access
    We address Bloch oscillations of a spin-orbit coupled atom in periodic potentials of two types: optical and Zeeman lattices. We show that in optical lattices the spin-orbit coupling allows controlling the direction of ...

    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We study the reflection of Bloch wave packets at the interface of an optical lattice possessing a shallow longitudinal out-of-phase refractive index modulation in the adjacent waveguides. We show that the relation between ...
  • Boundary effects in the Rayleigh line for a fluid out of thermal equilibrium

    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We analyze the effect of boundary conditions in the Rayleigh spectrum of a fluid under a temperature gradient. A specific wave vector geometry prevents coupling between temperature and velocity fluctuations and could make ...

    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We report theoretical and experimental observation of radiationless bound states in the continuum (BIC) in waveguiding anisotropic structures. BICs may have all possible polarizations and be the only possible boundstates ...
  • Bound states in the continuum in a two-dimensional PT - symmetric system 

    Kartashov, Yaroslav V.; Milian, Carles; Konotop, Vladimir V; Torner Sabata, Lluís (2018-02-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    We address a 2D parity-time (¿¿)-symmetric structure built as a chain of waveguides, where all waveguides except for the central one are conservative, while the central one is divided into two halves with gain and losses. ...
  • Bound states in the continuum in spin-orbit-coupled atomic systems 

    Kartashov, Yaroslav V.; Konotop, Vladimir V; Torner Sabata, Lluís (2017-09-14)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We show that the interplay between spin-orbit coupling and Zeeman splitting in atomic systems can lead to the existence of bound states in the continuum (BICs) supported by trapping potentials. Such states have energies ...
  • Bragg guiding of domainlike nonlinear modes and kink arrays in lower-index core structures 

    Ye, F; Kartashov, Yaroslav V.; Vysloukh, Victor A.; Torner Sabata, Lluís (2008-06)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We introduce a novel class of stable nonlinear modes trapped in a lower-index film core sandwiched between two optical lattices, or in the cylindrical core of a radial lattice, imprinted in defocusing media. Such a family ...
  • Bragg-type soliton mirror 

    Kartashov, Yaroslav V.; Vysloukh, Victor A.; Torner Sabata, Lluís (2006-02)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We study soliton reflection/transmission at the interface between uniform medium and the optical lattice with focusing Kerr nonlinearity. We reveal that such interfaces afford rich new opportunities for controlling the ...
  • Break-up of spatial solitons by cascading 

    Pérez Torres, Juan; Torner Sabata, Lluís (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 1996)
    Conference report
    Open Access
  • Bright solitons from defocusing nonlinearities 

    Borovkova, Olga V.; Kartashov, Yaroslav; Torner Sabata, Lluís; Malomed, Boris A. (2011-09-19)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We report that defocusing cubic media with spatially inhomogeneous nonlinearity, whose strength increases rapidly enough toward the periphery, can support stable bright localized modes. Such nonlinearity landscapes give ...
  • Bright solitons with second-order nonlinearities 

    Torner Sabata, Lluís; Menyuk, Curtis; Stegeman, George (1995-05)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We investigate the mutual trapping of intense fundamental and second-harmonic waves propagating in materials with second-order nonlinearity. Consistent with Menyuk’s robustness hypothesis of solitons, we numerically observe ...
  • Broadband light generation by noncollinear parametric down-conversion 

    Carrasco, S; Nars, M B; Sergienko, A; Saleh, B E A; Teich, M C; Pérez Torres, Juan; Torner Sabata, Lluís (2006-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Broadband light generation is demonstrated by noncollinear spontaneous parametric downconversion with a cw pump laser. By use of a suitable noncollinear phase-matching geometry and a tightly focused pump beam, downconverted ...
  • Brownian soliton motion 

    Kartashov, Yaroslav V.; Vysloukh, Victor A.; Torner Sabata, Lluís (2008-05)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We reveal fundamental analogies between soliton dynamics in light-induced random photonic lattices and Brownian motion of particles. In particular, we discover that the average squared soliton displacement increases linearly ...
  • Cavity solitons in a microring dimer with gain and loss 

    Milián, Carles; Kartashov, Yaroslav V.; Skryabin, Dmitry V.; Torner Sabata, Lluís (2018-02-20)
    Article
    Open Access
    We address a pair of vertically coupled microring resonators with gain and loss pumped by a single-frequency field. Coupling between microrings results in a twofold splitting of the single microring resonance that increases ...
  • Characterization of dielectric spheres by spiral imaging 

    Petrov, Dimitri; Rahuel, Nicolás; Molina Terriza, Gabriel; Torner Sabata, Lluís (2012)
    Article
