Abstract

Utilizing a type II interaction for second-harmonic generation in a crystal of potassium titanyl phosphate, we experimentally demonstrate the all-optical action of a light modulator with both signal and output at the same optical wavelength. This modulator is controlled by the intensity of the injected signal, a characteristic that makes it a suitable candidate for all-optical transistor action and ultrafast analog processing in transparent networks for telecommunications.
