Abstract

We show that dispersion and loss-engineered photonic crystal waveguides can support optical event horizons enabling the manipulation of a strong soliton pulse by a weaker control pulse within a 3 mm waveguide. Depending on the launching frequency of the weak control pulse, both blue and red soliton shifts are observed, while the soliton appears to be delayed by several pulse widths.
