Paper Abstract

It is shown that nonlinear phenomena in quadratic media can be exploited in ultrafast, high-contrast all-optical switching. Two examples of transistor-like action, namely an all-optical switch based on the parametric down-conversion and a device exploiting vectorial cascading are considered in details. Influence of various control parameter including the effect of pulse walk-off on the performance of the envisaged schemes is discussed.
