Paper Abstract

We report experiments on the magnitude and speed of optical-field induced changes in the refractive index of semiconductor-doped color-filter glasses. A large third-order nonlinear susceptibility of 10-13 to10-14m2/W is measured with a response time of tens of picoseconds. Low-loss (planar and channel) optical waveguides have been fabricated by ion-exchange in these glasses.
