Abstract

We describe the two-wavelength operation of the nonlinear fiber loop mirror. In this mode of operation a high-power signal at one wavelength switches a low-power signal at another wavelength. This device is investigated both theoretically and experimentally. The experimental results show that the nonlinear loop mirror performs as an optical modulator that consists of all-fiber components.
