Concatenated all-optical loop mirror switches

B K Nayar, N Finlayson, Nick Doran

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Synthesis of a sharp switching characteristic is experimentally demonstrated by concatenation of nonlinear optical loop mirrors. A novel configuration has been used which results in three terminal operation of the device. This device can be used as a logic gate and for pulse shaping to produce square pulses. © 1993 Taylor and Francis Ltd.
