Very low threshold Sagnac switch incorporating an erbium-doped fibre amplifier
Fast, very low threshold optical pulse switching, in a nonlinear loop mirror incorporating an erbium doped fibre amplifier (EDFA) operating at 1.536µm with a gain of 46dB is reported. For a 336m Sagnac loop the input switching power is 200µW, which is 5 x 103 lower than the best previously reported.

Abstract

Fast, very low threshold optical pulse switching, in a nonlinear loop mirror incorporating an erbium doped fibre amplifier (EDFA) operating at 1.536µm with a gain of 46dB is reported. For a 336m Sagnac loop the input switching power is 200µW, which is 5 x 103 lower than the best previously reported.
