Abstract

A single-mode lead silicate optical fiber has been fabricated to permit lower-power all-optical switching. The core glass has a nonlinear index of refraction eight times that of silica. The loss of the fiber is less than 2 dB/m. Over 17π of phase shift was obtained, as measured by self-phase modulation, in a 29-cm length of fiber. At the 1-kW peak power level required to produce this large phase shift, two-photon absorption and stimulated Raman scattering did not significantly degrade the desired nonlinear behavior.
