All-optical switching and amplification of discrete vector solitons in nonlinear cubic birefringent waveguide arrays

Vicencio, Rodrigo A.; Molina, Mario I.; Kivshar, Yuri S.


We study all-optical switching based on the dynamical properties of discrete vector solitons in waveguide arrays. We employ the concept of the polarization mode instability and demonstrate simultaneous switching and amplification of a weak signal by a strong pump of the other polarization.
