All-optical switching based on nondegenerate phase shifts from a cascaded second-order nonlinearity

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

All-optical switching by using a nondegenerate cascaded second-order nonlinearity is described wherein a phase shift is induced at one frequency owing to the presence of intense light at a different frequency. A Mach–Zehnder waveguide device is proposed to take advantage of this process and has applications for all-optical switching and demultiplexing, potentially at power levels near 10 W by using quasi-phase matching in semiconductor waveguides.
