Integrated All-Optical Routing Y-Junction Device With Ultrafast On/Off Switching
Abbreviated Journal Title
optical switches; integrated optics; Engineering, Electrical & Electronic
A Y-junction multiquantum well waveguide device using carrier-induced nonlinearities has been tested for all-optical switching. Ultrafast switching is achieved using two consecutive control pulses to turn the device on and off. A switch contrast ratio of 1:2 has been achieved within a switching window of 10ps.
