Temporal dynamics of all-optical switching in quadratic nonlinear directional couplers

Schiek, R.; Solntsev, A. S.; Neshev, D. N.


We study the temporal dynamics of all-optical switching in nonlinear directional couplers in periodically poled lithium niobate. The characteristic features of such switching, including asymmetric pulse break-up and back-switching were measured in full agreement with the theoretical predictions. Based on the time-resolved measurement of intensity-dependent switching, finally the theoretically long-known continuous-wave switching curve has experimentally been confirmed.
