Bragg solitons and optical switching in nonlinear periodic structures: an historical perspective.

Abstract

A brief historical narrative of the study of Bragg solitons and optical switching in nonlinear periodic structures is presented, beginning with the first theoretical predictions in the late 1970s up to and including several recent experimental demonstrations of optical switching and nonlinear pulse propagation in these structures.
