Paper Abstract

A theoretical proposal is presented for the generation of mode-locked light-bullets in planar waveguide arrays, extending the concept of time-domain mode-locking in waveguide arrays to spatial (transverse) mode-locking in slab waveguides. The model presented yields three-dimensional localized states that act as global attractors to the waveguide array system. Single pulse stationary and time-periodic solutions as well as the transition to multi-pulse solutions as a function of gain are observed to be stabilized in such a system.
