Abstract

We present research on nonether polyphenylquinoxaline film waveguides, and a scheme for an all-optical switching operation of waveguides is suggested. We use the m-line spectroscopy technique to characterize the guiding modes in the waveguide, and the switching phenomenon is observed with two-wavelength nonlinear prism coupling. The measured response time of the switching signal is less than 10-9 s.
