Localized vectorial modes, with equal frequencies and mutually orthogonal
polarizations, are investigated both analytically and experimentally in a
one-dimensional photonic lattice with saturable nonlinearity. It is shown that
these modes may span over many lattice elements and that energy transfer among
the two components is both phase and intensity dependent. The transverse
electrically polarized mode exhibits a single-hump structure and spreads in
cascades in saturation, while the transverse magnetically polarized mode
exhibits splitting into a two-hump structure. Experimentally such discrete
vector solitons are observed in lithium niobate lattices for both coherent and
mutually incoherent excitations.
