Abstract

We show that propagation of optical beams in periodic lattices induces power oscillations between the Fourier spectrum peaks, with the indices related by the Bragg resonance condition. In the spatial coordinates, this is reflected in the beam position oscillations. A simple resonant theory explains the phenomenon. The effect can be used for controlled generation of the Floquet–Bloch modes in photonic lattices.
