We demonstrate all-optical wavelength conversion in a 5 cm As(2)S(3) chalcogenide glass rib waveguide with 5.4 ps pulses over a wavelength range of 10 nm near 1550 nm. We present frequency resolved optical gating (FROG) measurements that show good converted pulse integrity in terms of amplitude and phase in the frequency and time domains. The short(More)
We have fabricated 630 × 500 nm nanowires from Ge(11.5)As(24)Se(64.5) chalcogenide glass by electron beam lithography (EBL) and inductively coupled plasma (ICP) etching. The loss of the nanowire was measured to be 2.6 dB/cm for the fundamental TM mode. The nonlinear coefficient (γ) was determined to be ≈136 ± 7 W(-1)m(-1) at 1550 nm by both CW(More)
We demonstrate supercontinuum generation in a highly nonlinear As(2)S(3) chalcogenide planar waveguide which is dispersion engineered to have anomalous dispersion at near-infrared wavelengths. This waveguide is 60 mm long with a cross-section of 2 mum by 870 nm, resulting in a nonlinear parameter of 10 /W/m and a dispersion of +29 ps/nm/km. Using pulses(More)
We report the characteristics of low-loss chalcogenide waveguides for sensing in the mid-infrared (MIR). The waveguides consisted of a Ge₁₁.₅As₂₄Se₆₄.₅ rib waveguide core with a 10nm fluoropolymer coating on a Ge₁₁.₅As₂₄S₆₄.₅ bottom cladding and were fabricated by thermal evaporation, photolithography and ICP plasma etching. Over most of the functional(More)
We demonstrate a high-Q(approximately 125,000) photonic crystal (PhC) cavity formed using a postprocessing optical exposure technique where the refractive index of a photosensitive chalcogenide PhC is modified locally. The evolution of the cavity resonances was monitored in situ during writing using a tapered fiber evanescent coupling system, and the Q of(More)
We report the first (to our knowledge) demonstration of photonic chip based tunable slow and fast light via stimulated Brillouin scattering. Slow, fast, and negative group velocities were observed in a 7 cm long chalcogenide (As(2)S(3)) rib waveguide with a group index change ranging from ~-44 to +130, which results in a maximum delay of ~23 ns at a(More)
We report first observation of net-gain from an optical parametric amplifier in a planar waveguide. This was achieved in a low-loss As(2)S(3) planar waveguide, with a strong nonlinearity (gamma approximately 10 /W/m) and tailored anomalous dispersion yielding efficient Raman-assisted four-wave mixing at telecom wavelengths. The experiments were in good(More)
We report the first demonstration of a photonic chip based dynamically reconfigurable, widely tunable, narrow pass-band, high Q microwave photonic filter (MPF). We exploit stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) in a 6.5 cm long chalcogenide (As2S3) photonic chip to demonstrate a MPF that exhibited a high quality factor of ~520 and narrow bandwidth and was(More)
We report the first demonstration of error-free 640 Gbit/s demultiplexing using the Kerr non-linearity of an only 5 cm long chalcogenide glass waveguide chip. Our approach exploits four-wave mixing by the instantaneous nonlinear response of chalcogenide. Excellent performance is achieved with only 2 dB average power penalty and no indication of error-floor.(More)
