Research Institution
Not Available ALTAIR Center proposes to develop an innovative component for all-optical signal processing. The nonlinear component will be capable to operate as all-optical transistor, modulator, sampler and quantizer. It can also be used in new bistable optical device configurations. Two types of new nonlinear materials will be incorporated in the system design: (1) recently demonstrated dye-doped nematic liquid crystals with extraordinary large nonlinearity and (2) semiconductor materials with dramatically enhanced nonlinearity. A revolutionary technology for fabrication of semiconductor materials which nonlinearity is increased in 10¿-10¿ times providing sensitivity of 1m W/mm¿ will be developed and used in the device design. An all-fiber-in-line version of the component uses resonance evanescent coupling between a side polished single-mode fiber and a high-index multimode nonlinear waveguide. In a compact integrated optical version of the components, the developed technology will be used for selective processing of semiconductor based Mach-Zehnder modulators and directional couplers in order to enhance their nonlinearity. Phase I of the program will address to developing and demonstrating the proposed technology for fabrication of the all-optical components. In Phase II, the all-fiber-in-line and integrated optical versions of the device will be developed, fabricated and tested with the final product delivered to BMDO.
