Paper Abstract

Nonlinear optical organic materials will be the key elements for future telecommunication and photonic technologies. In this report the new ultrafast nonlinear switching and logic based on nonlinear tunneling of optical solitons through organic thin films are proposed and investigated. Numerical simulations of nonlinear soliton tunneling through thin films of polydiacetylene para-toluene sulfonate predict a `reaction-like' phenomenon in which a new colored solitons are formed. It seems very attractive to use the nonlinear soliton tunneling effects predicted in developing a whole class of basically novel soliton logical devices.
