Abstract

Linear and nonlinear optical properties of Ge33As12Se55 pulsed-laser-deposited (PLD) films are presented. The effect of exposure on these films is investigated in some detail. The PLD films showed photobleaching as a result of exposure to 610-nm laser light. Degenerate four-wave mixing and Z-scan techniques were used to obtain the nonlinear refractive index and absorption coefficient of germanium arsenic selenide films. Ge33As12Se55 films are highly nonlinear, and their measured n2 value was 2.2×10-13 cm2/W. The suitability of Ge33As12Se55 PLD films for ultrafast all-optical switching is also discussed. We designed and simulated a nonlinear directional coupler switch that can be made in PLD films.
