Abstract

Strong polarization changes are observed near the soliton power in a planar waveguide filled with an isotropic material (CS2). Only pure TM and TE modes retain their polarization. The presence of even a small input TE component tends to transform the output polarization into TE polarization. The experimental results are in agreement with coupled-mode theory and facilitate optical switching applications.
