Very few nonlinear optical materials are actually useful for high throughput all-optical devices. However, AlGaAs does satisfy all of the nonlinear optical figures of merit when used with photons of energy less than one half the semiconductor bandgap. Here we review our measurements of the pertinent nonlinear coefficients in waveguides and various device applications to all-optical switching in the communications band around 1550 nm.
