Bulk chalcogenide glasses spanning a range of compositions have been measured for their nonlinear index of refraction (n(2)) and two-photon absorption (alpha(2)) at 1.3 and 1.55 mu m, using the 2-scan technique. The figure of merit, T, was calculated for each glass and used as an indication of potential of these glasses for all optical switching applications. Selected samples have been deposited as films, using techniques elaborated herein, to form channel waveguides and the results of initial measurements of self-phase modulation (SPM) in these samples are reported.
