Abstract

We propose a new type of scalar wave-mixing optical solitons, Talbot solitons. The soliton consists of sinusoidal and uniform components that are mutually coherent and jointly trapped in one direction. The intensity structure of the soliton oscillates in the propagation direction as a result of the linear Talbot effect and periodic nonlinear energy exchange between the components. Talbot solitons induce a 1D waveguide and a 2D photonic lattice within the waveguide that may be used for quasi-phase matching of frequency conversion and as a tunable waveguide filter.
