          Abstract

          We study Hanbury Brown-Twiss spatial intensity correlations in femtosecond laser-fabricated photonic Su-Schrieffer-Heeger lattices. We first probe edge bound states in the continuum (BICs) of two indistinguishable bosons by mapping the intensity correlations to the two-body bosonic quantum walk. These two-body edge BICs show remarkable robustness in the presence of disorder. The localization of intensity correlation, observed in the linear regime, persists at weak nonlinearity due to the formation of {\it long-lived breathers} and solitons on the edge of the lattice. For stronger nonlinearities, the light tends to be delocalized from the edge site into the bulk, destroying the localization of the intensity correlation. Our results show the interplay of band structure, initial state, and nonlinearity influencing transport and intensity correlations.
