Abstract

In J. Phys. Soc. Jpn. 83, 034404 (2014), we designed a scheme of waveguide arrays with long-range linear coupling effects and studied the bright solitons in this system. In this paper, we further study the dynamics of dark and grey solitons in such waveguide arrays. The numerical simulations show that the stabilities of dark solitons and grey solitons depend on the normalized decay length and the scaled input power. The width of dark solitons and the grey level of grey solitons are studied. Our results may contribute to the understanding of discrete solitons in long-range linear coupling waveguide arrays, and may have potential applications in optical communications and all-optical networks.
