Resum
We study light propagation in waveguide arrays made in Kerr nonlinear media with a transverse refractive index gradient, and we find that the presence of the refractive index gradient leads to the appearance of a number of new soliton families. The effective coupling between the solitons and the localized linear eigenmodes of the lattice induces a drastic asymmetry in the soliton shapes and the appearance of long tails at the soliton wings. Such unusual solitons are found to be completely stable...
