Abstract

The nascent field of semiconductor optical fibers is attracting increasing interest as a means to exploit the optoelectronic functionality of the semiconductor materials directly within the fiber geometry [1]. Compared to their planar counterparts, this new class of waveguide retains many of the advantageous properties of the fiber platforms such as robustness, flexibility, and long waveguide lengths . Furthermore, by employing standard fiber post -processing procedures to reshape and recrystallize the core material, it is also possible to tailor the optical properties beyond what is achievable on-chip, of particular use for nonlinear applications [2]. In this paper we review our efforts regarding the nonl inear characterization of a range of semiconductor fibers . Results of transmission measurements obtained for fibers with different core materials and geometries will be presented and the potential to extend their application into the mid-infrared wavelength regimes discussed.
