Abstract

We propose and analyze a novel geometry for all-optical processing of low-power signals that is based on a frequency-nondegenerate counterpropagating parametric amplifier. The stationary response in the cascading regime exhibits multivalued solutions with enhanced nonlinear phase shifts. Implementation in a quasi-phase-matched LiNbO3 waveguide is discussed.
