As optical communication systems continue to advance in speed and complexity, the demand grows for high-speed devices to perform wavelength conversion, multiplexing, and switching operations. Semiconductor diode laser amplifiers exhibit large and ultrafast optical nonlinearities that make them promising candidates as the basic building blocks for such all… (More)
