Abstract

We put forward the concept of reconfigurable structures optically induced by mutually incoherent nondiffracting Bessel beams in Kerr-type nonlinear media. We address collinear couplers and X junctions and show how one can tune the switching properties of such structures by varying the intensity of the Bessel beams.
