Slow-light switching in nonlinear Bragg-grating couplers

Ha, Sangwoo; Sukhorukov, Andrey A.; Kivshar, Yuri S.

Description

We study propagation and switching of slow-light pulses in nonlinear couplers with phase-shifted Bragg gratings. We demonstrate that power-controlled nonlinear self-action of light can be used to compensate for dispersion-induced broadening of pulses through the formation of gap solitons, to control pulse switching in the coupler, and to tune the propagation velocity.
