Abstract

Single-mode planar waveguides were fabricated from chalcogenide glass compounds with large Kerr nonlinearities. Strong self-phase modulation of sub-ps pulses along with low linear and nonlinear absorption losses demonstrates the potential for integrated all-optical switching applications.
