Paper Abstract

Optical gate switch is a vital part of all-optical signal processing and being investigated. A kind of optical gate switch, called ultrafast nonlinear interferometer (UNI) consisting of a SOA, which is used as a nonlinear component in the path of one-arm MZI, has the advantages of a simple structure and high speed. In this letter, we report a 10GHz all-optical switch based on an UNI. Through our experiment, we found that the switching window depends on many parameters, including the injection current of SOA, the power of control pulse, and the power of continual light.
