Abstract

The escalation of global communication traffic has intensified the need for faster data processing techniques and systems. A combination of excessive browsing and downloading from of the world-wide web and high definition television technologies necessitates a replacement of today’s electronic-based data processing with all-optical systems. The light signal, which is carried within thin strands of optical fibre, will be manipulated at speeds and capacities far beyond the capability of existing electronics without the signal having to leave the transmitting fibre. To date, signal regeneration, switching, and encoding/decoding of information have all been demonstrated in conventional silica-based optical fibres. However, the long fibre lengths and high powers necessary to achieve this represent a significant drawback. In order to realize efficient, compact and ultrafast data processing schemes with low energy consumption new fibres will have to be fabricated that incorporate enhanced material functionalities such as high nonlinearities. A recent and promising new fibre platform that incorporates semiconductor materials into the core of a silica glass cladding has opened a route to realize this goal. In this poster, I will describe my research on the demonstration of all-optical signal processing in micron-sized resonators fabricated from silicon core optical fibres.
