Abstract

We investigate, theoretically and experimentally, how linear modes evolve around discrete solitons. If the shape of the exciting beam is not matched to a soliton state, linear modes are excited, resulting in significant oscillations of the beam amplitude. Linear modes can cause a power increase in a single guide, where the effect of nonlinear absorption is enhanced tremendously. As a result we observe a splitting of the soliton, which is highly asymmetric in case of a tilted input beam. In the latter case most of the emerging field distribution finally moves opposite to the initial tilt.
