Bandpass switching in a nonlinear optical loop mirror

Pattison, David A., Kean, P.N., Forysiak, W., Bennion, Ian and Doran, Nick (1995). Bandpass switching in a nonlinear optical loop mirror. Optics letters, 20 (4), pp. 362-364.


We demonstrate bandpass nonlinear switching, using a novel device configuration based on a nonlinear-optical loop mirror and an in-fiber Bragg grating. Self-switching is demonstrated in the soliton regime by use of an asymmetrically arranged in-fiber Bragg grating as a wavelength-selective element. In addition, we adapt the configuration to perform efficient two-wavelength switching.
