  • Asymmetric soliton mobility in competing linear-nonlinear parity-time-symmetric lattices 

    Kartashov, Yaroslav V.; Vysloukh, Victor A.; Torner Sabata, Lluís (2016-09-15)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We address the transverse mobility of spatial solitons in competing parity-time-symmetric linear and nonlinear lattices. The competition between out-of-phase linear and nonlinear lattices results in a drastic mobility ...
