Nonlinear switching in fibre Bragg gratings

Nonlinear switching in fibre Bragg gratings
Nonlinear switching in fibre Bragg gratings
We report on our recent experiments on nonlinear switching in fibre Bragg gratings. Using an all-fibre source we show an increase in transmission of a FBG from 4% to 40% at high powers. This switching is associated with the formation of gap solitons inside the grating. We also demonstrate an all-optical AND gate using polarization coupled gap solitons and the optical pushbroom.

Abstract

We report on our recent experiments on nonlinear switching in fibre Bragg gratings. Using an all-fibre source we show an increase in transmission of a FBG from 4% to 40% at high powers. This switching is associated with the formation of gap solitons inside the grating. We also demonstrate an all-optical AND gate using polarization coupled gap solitons and the optical pushbroom.
