Abstract

We demonstrate that interfaces between two nonlinear periodic photonic lattices offer unique possibilities for controlling the nonlinear interaction between different spectral components of polychromatic light, and a change in the light spectrum can have a dramatic effect on the propagation along the interface. We predict the existence of polychromatic surface solitons that differ fundamentally from their counterparts in infinite lattices.
