Paper Abstract

We propose a novel nonlinear all-optical switch by using the phase and power modulation of spatial solitons. The proposed waveguide structure is composed of a straight nonlinear signal waveguide, a nonlinear delay branch, a nonlinear control waveguide, and three nonlinear output guides. By properly launching the control power and varying the length of the delay branch, this nonlinear waveguide structure could really function as an all-optical switch. It could be a potential key component in the application of integrated-optics circuits.
