Paper Abstract

We demonstrate a new possibility of a soliton velocity control at its propagation in a nonlinear layered structure (1D photonic crystal) which is placed in a nonlinear ambient medium. Nonlinear response of the ambient medium, as well as the PhC layers, is cubic. At the initial time moment, a soliton is spread over a few layers of PhC. Then, soliton propagates across the layered structure because of the initial wave-vector direction presence for the laser beam. The soliton reaches the PhC faces and reflects from them or passes through the face. As a nonlinear medium surrounds the PhC, the laser beam obtains additional impulse after interaction with this medium and accelerates (or slows down or stops near the PhC face). Nonlinear response of the ambient medium can be additionally created by another laser beam which shines near the PhC faces.
