Abstract
In our work we investigate the hexagonal matrix of cylindrical step-index waveguides placed inside a silica fiber. The linear and nonlinear parameters of the analyzed structure are optimized to observe discrete diffraction and creation of discrete spatial solitons. Numerical simulations were done for both focusing and defocusing Kerr-type nonlinearities.
