Paper Abstract

All optical devices based on nonlinear effects that use low-level power pumping acquire a great importance in optical communications systems and photonic processing. These optical devices can be implemented by means of different structures and materials. For instance, Fabry-Perot vertical microcavities, whispering gallery based microcavities or hybrid system of photonic crystal microcavities can improve their performance and so make possible a real implementation. In this research work we review the properties of optical media with three-level systems in which electromagnetically induced transparency has been induced. We analyse the effect of including such kind of material in an optical microcavity of the order of wavelenghts. Transmission properties like as the quality factor, the peak of transmission, the power of the coupling field in these microcavities with very small volume and very high non-linear Kerr coefficients will be analysed. Their application for developing new all-optical photonic devices for the next generation of all-optical networks, optical packets switching networks, and quantum information processing will be presented.
