Phase- and polarization-insensitive all-optical switching by self-guiding in quadratic media.

Abstract

We demonstrate numerically that a frequency-degenerate process through typeII downconversion in a quadratic nonlinear waveguide leads to the formation of spatial simultons and all-optical switching in the presence of a control signal. This novel effect is phase independent, generally insensitive to polarization, and weakly affected by the magnitude of the… (More)
