Paper Abstract

A lossy nonlinear directional coupler is studied numerically. It consists of two lossless planar optical waveguides coupled through a lossy multiple quantum well nonlinear medium. GaAs-based material parameters were used for the analysis, and the input/output optical transfer characteristics are presented here.
