With metal stripes being intrinsic components of plasmonic waveguides, plasmonics provides a "naturally" energy-efficient platform for merging broadband optical links with intelligent electronic processing, instigating a great promise for low-power and small-footprint active functional circuitry. The first active Dielectric-Loaded Surface Plasmon Polariton… (More)
We demonstrate an optically controlled 2x2 Crossbar switch suitable for all-optical switching architectures. The switch is based on an Ultrafast Nonlinear Interferometer (UNI) configuration and uses 80 centimeters of highly nonlinear Bismuth Oxide fiber. Error-free operation is demonstrated with 10 and 40 Gb/s input signals, with power penalties in its BAR… (More)
