Paper Abstract

We briefly review the present status of work on all-optical photonic devices and discuss the properties of nonlinear optical materials that control and limit device performance. We then describe some recent work that indicates that As-rich GaAs is a promising material for ultrafast all-optical devices, and conclude with some projections for future progress in this field.
