Abstract

We discuss potential applications of multicolor solitons supported by periodic lattices imprinted in quadratic nonlinear media. Such lattice solitons can be packed together with appropriate relative phases to form stable soliton trains that can be treated as bit sequences. We describe controllable splitting of the trains into their soliton constituents and the angle- and power-controlled steering and trapping of solitons moving across the lattice into the desired guiding channel.
