Ag-nanocrystal-incorporated germano-silicate optical fiber with high resonant nonlinearity was fabricated by using modified chemical vapor deposition and solution doping techniques. An all-optical signal switching application based on cross-phase modulation was demonstrated in the cascaded long-period fiber gratings. Pumped with 499 nm argon laser, all-optical signal gating of the π-phase shift was achieved with low pump intensities of less than 7.64 GW cm 2 .
