Paper Abstract

The swing effect of spatial solitons excited by the butt-coupled linear waveguide is investigated numerically. The proposed waveguide structure is composed of a inclined butt-coupled linear waveguide and a straight nonlinear waveguide. In the input section, the inclined butt-coupled linear waveguide is used to launch the input signal beam. In the straight nonlinear waveguide section, the spatial solitons will be excited and swing in the nonlinear waveguide under the perturbation of the linear-nonlinear interfaces. The swing path of the spatial solitons depends upon the input power level as well as the position and the angle between the linear and nonlinear waveguides. The swing effect of spatial solitons excited by the butt-coupled linear waveguide will be useful for designing all-optical switching devices.
