Abstract

We demonstrated a novel two-dimensional photonic crystal (PC) based Symmetric Mach Zehnder type all-optical switch (PC-SMZ) with InAs quantum dots (QDs) acting as a nonlinear phase-shift source. The 600-µm-long PC-SMZ having integrated wavelength-selective PC-based directional couplers and other PC components exhibited a 15-ps-wide switching-window with 2-ps rise/fall time at a wavelength of 1.3 µm. Nonlinear optical phase shift in the 500-µm-long straight PC waveguide was also achieved at sufficiently low optical-energy (e.g., π phase shift at ~100-fJ control-pulse energy) due to the small saturation energy density of the QDs, which is enhanced in the PC waveguide, without using conventional measures such as SOAs with current-injected gain. The results pave the way to novel PC- and QD-based photonic integrated circuits including multiple PC-SMZs and other novel functional devices.

Nonlinear optical properties in the InAs QDs induced by control pulses (CPs). Decay characteristics in the NLO-induced phase shift and the amplitude change in the transmitted signal pulses (SPs). The peak wavelength and pulse width were 1285 nm and 2 ps for the CP and 1295 nm and 0.2 ps for the SP, respectively. The net pulse energies were estimated to be 20 fJ/pulse (CP) and 0.6 fJ/pulse (SP), respectively.
