Paper Abstract

A critical physical phenomenon of polarization instability was observed in periodically poled lithium niobate, which reveals that tiny changes in the exterior conditions will have a remarkable effect on the polarization state of the output light. The instability shown here has a new physical mechanism from those in the weakly dispersive fiber, and such an in-chip chaos system is likely to promote an integrated chaos device behaving as biosensor, switch, and filter with high sensitivity or resolution.
