We review the concept of achieving a large optical nonlinearity via a light-induced phase transformation in a confined solid. Nanoscale films and nanoparticles of gallium are examined as prime examples of materials displaying this type of optically broadband, fast and bright nonlinear response, which show promise for future all-optical switching applications.

Abstract

We review the concept of achieving a large optical nonlinearity via a light-induced phase transformation in a confined solid. Nanoscale films and nanoparticles of gallium are examined as prime examples of materials displaying this type of optically broadband, fast and bright nonlinear response, which show promise for future all-optical switching applications.
