AB  - We analyze the modulational instability of nonlinear Bloch waves in topological photonic lattices. In the initial phase of the instability development captured by the linear stability analysis, long wavelength instabilities and bifurcations of the nonlinear Bloch waves are sensitive to topological band inversions. At longer timescales, nonlinear wave mixing induces spreading of energy through the entire band and spontaneous creation of wave polarization singularities determined by the band Chern number. Our analytical and numerical results establish modulational instability as a tool to probe bulk topological invariants and create topologically nontrivial wave fields. © 2021 American Physical Society.

AB  - We study the properties of nonlinear Bloch waves in a diamond chain waveguide lattice in the presence of a synthetic magnetic flux. In the linear limit, the lattice exhibits a completely flat (wavevector k-independent) band structure, resulting in perfect wave localization, known as Aharonov-Bohm caging. We find that in the presence of nonlinearity, the Bloch waves become sensitive to k, exhibiting bifurcations and instabilities. Performing numerical beam propagation simulations using the tight-binding model, we show how the instabilities can result in either the spontaneous or controlled formation of localized modes, which are immobile and remain pinned in place due to the synthetic magnetic flux. © 2021 Author(s.

AB  - The linear diamond chain with fine-tuned effective magnetic flux has a completely flat energy spectrum and compactly localized eigenmodes, forming an Aharonov-Bohm cage. We study numerically how this localization is affected by different types of disorder (static and time-evolving) relevant to recent realizations of Aharonov-Bohm cages in periodically modulated optical waveguide arrays. We demonstrate robustness of localization under static and time-periodic disorder. In contrast, nonquenched (time-dependent) disorder leads to wave-packet spreading and delocalization.
