Silicon waveguide based nonlinear directional coupler as a soliton switch
Author(s): Amarendra K. Sarma

Paper Abstract

We propose, for the first time to the best of our knowledge, a design for a silicon waveguide-based nonlinear directional coupler in order to achieve soliton self-switching. Numerical analysis shows that the proposed design may be quite useful as a soliton switch.
