Femtosecond response time in a polarization-rotation switch using semiconductor-doped glasses

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

A polarization-rotation switch is demonstrated that is based on semiconductor-doped glasses. The response time is shorter than 50 fs, and an on-off ratio of 38:1 could be obtained at a pulse fluence of 1.5 × 10−6 J/cm2, which corresponds to an intensity of 10 MW/cm2.
