Abstract

We report all-optical switching of 100-fsec pulses in a fused-quartz dual-core-fiber directional coupler. The length of the device is 0.5 cm, and the switching power is 32 kW. Pulses are routed to either of two separate fiber guides, depending on the input power. Measurements of pulse reshaping by the nonlinear coupler provide compelling evidence of the device’s ability to response on a femotosecond time scale.
