Paper Abstract

Recent progress in development and nonlinear optical device application of germano-silicate optical fibers incorporated with noble metal nanoparticles are presented. Novel macro-optical properties, such as linear absorption, resonant optical nonlinearity, and optical limiting properties of the fibers fabricated by modified chemical vapor deposition and solution doping techniques are experimentally and theoretically demonstrated based on surface plasmon resonance effect and nonlinear confinement of the noble metal nanoparticles. Applications of the fibers for all-optical signal gating with the cascaded long period gratings and for a new method to determine the third-order susceptibility of optical fibers are discussed.
