Lately, the optical research community has shown considerable interest in wave propagation phenomena in discrete structures. Arrays or lattices of evanescently coupled waveguides or chains of coupled microresonators are prime examples of structures where discrete optical wave dynamics can be observed. One question that has naturally arisen is whether the Talbot effect is also possible in discrete systems.
