New Optical Switch Could Lead to All-Optical Signal Processing

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
An optical switch developed by Caltech researchers harnesses the property of optical nonlinearity and aims to enable ultrafast all-optical signal processing and computing. According to its developers, the technology could help to bypass one of the major limitations of optics-based computing — the need to use electronics-based transistors to process data. Although optical nonlinear functions enable applications in integrated photonics, including all-optical information processing and photonic neural networks, most nanophotonic platforms demonstrate weak native nonlinearity.
