Abstract

We propose and analyze a differential control scheme for cavity-enhanced optical signal processing devices based on carrier nonlinearities. The scheme relies on two optical cavities to increase the bandwidth beyond the limit given by the slowest carrier relaxation rate of the medium. Practical implementations are envisioned using photonic crystal cavities, and the controls may be electrical or optical in nature.

Example of nonlinear resonance shifts δ 1 / 2 NL in the cavities, which have excitation times τ E much shorter than their recovery times τ R . In the shown example, the bit sequence of the controls is four “1”s preceded by an infinite sequence of “0”s. The nonlinear shifts are normalized by the inverse cavity lifetime 1 / τ C .

Contour plot of the transmission, as a function of the detunings ( ω 1 ω ) and ( ω 2 ω ) . Here the on-state transmission T on is chosen to be 0.7 (dark red areas), the on/off contrast T on / T off is 20 dB, and the off-state is represented by the dark blue area. The overlaid white curve shows the variation of ( δ 1 eff ( t ) , δ 2 eff ( t ) ) .

Instantaneous transmission found by evaluating the linear transmission T at each point on the white parametrized curve in Fig. 3. The dotted lines indicate the on- and off-state transmission levels.

Output power, as a function of time, normalized by the constant input power P S in for cavity lifetimes ranging from τ C / τ E = 0.12 (red) to τ C / τ E = 1.6 (blue). The black curves show the instantaneous transmission similar to the curve in Fig. 4. The controls have the same shape as in Fig. 2 and we show a zoom-in at t = τ R .

Pulse width Δ t (blue) and output energy (green) extracted from Fig. 5. The output energy is found by integrating P S out ( t ) over the interval Δ t .
