Paper Abstract

Based on cascading of second-order nonlinearities we propose novel schemes for all-optical signal processing exploiting the tensorial nature of the susceptibility. Waves of the same frequency and orthogonal polarizations can interact via the generated second-harmonic, with an indirect energy transfer and the consequent possibility of gain and transistor action, polarization switching, amplitude and phase modulation.
