Abstract

Nonlinear dynamics of wave packets in two-dimensional parity-time-symmetric optical lattices near the phase transition point are analytically studied. A fourth-order equation is derived for the envelope of these wave packets. A pyramid diffraction pattern is demonstrated in both the linear and nonlinear regimes. Blow-up is also possible in the nonlinear regime for both focusing and defocusing nonlinearities.
