Paper Abstract

Third-order optical nonlinearity in optical fibers has attractive applications to all-optical signal processing that will be employed in future photonic networks. After reviewing the third-order nonlinear optical property of optical fibers, we describe some examples of all-optical signal processing devices, focussing on self-phase modulation (SPM), cross-phase modulation (XPM), and four-wave mixing (FWM).
