Paper Abstract

A new class of materials, three dimensional microscopic crystals of CdSxSel_x grown in the interior of a silicate glass matrix1 has been emerging with great promise for application in room temperature nonlinear signal processing, based on guided-wave or etalon devices. Semiconductor-doped lasses commercially available as color-glass filters combine relatively large nonlinearity (n2 = 10-1' m2/W) and rapid response time in the picosecond region (T < 10-11 s). Evidence of quantum size effects both at room temperatures2 and low temperatures3 has been also reported.
