Won, Dong-Jin, Ramirez, Mariola O., Kang, Hoonsoo, Gopalan, V., Baril, Neil F., Calkins, Jacob, Badding, John V. and Sazio, Pier J.A. (2007) All-optical modulation of laser light in amorphous silicon-filled microstructured optical fibers Applied Physics Letters, 91, (16), p. 161112. (doi:10.1063/1.2790079).

Record type: Article


Amorphous silicon is deposited within optical fibers by a high pressure microfluidic deposition process and characterized via Raman spectroscopy. All-optical modulation of 1.55 µm light guided through the silicon core is demonstrated using the free carrier absorption generated by a 532 nm pump pulse. Modulation depths of up to 8.26 dB and modulation frequencies of up to 1.4 MHz are demonstrated.
