Optical switching in nonlinear waveguide arrays with a longitudinally decreasing coupling coefficient

Abstract

An analysis of the switching properties of nonlinear waveguide arrays with longitudinally decreasing coupling coefficients is presented. It is shown that one can achieve both phase- and amplitude-controlled optical switching with a high extinction ratio by providing axially decreasing mutual coupling, which induces adiabatic narrowing of spatial light-wave distributions in the waveguide arrays.
