Optical switches in thin film coatings based on highly nonlinear materials

Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics Europe & European Quantum Electronics Conference (CLEO/Europe-EQEC)
26. Juni - 30. Juni
Type: Konferenzbeitrag
A concept for a fast, passive optical switch based on the optical Kerr-effect in thin film interference coatings is presented. The materials, manufacturing and successful validation of optical switching is presented and discussed.
