Switching-window in an interferometric configuration of a gain-transparent ultrafast nonlinear interferometer (gt-UNI) is investigated numerically. The phase change is observed in detail. To assess the performance of switching window, the integrated contrast ratio (ICR) is introduced. For the data pulse with the bit width of 6.25 ps and with the energy of 60 pJ, respectively, the ICRs in different situations are simulated using modified nonlinear Schrodinger equation (MNLSE) considering of the carrier depletion pulsation (CDP), carrier heating (CH), and spectral-hole burning (SHB). The results show that the maximum ICR is located at the optimum position of the semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) that is determined by the width and energy of the control pulse.
