Solitonlike optical switching in a circular fiber array. Academic Article uri icon


  • We show numerically that a solitonlike propagation behavior in a self-focusing nonlinear fiber array can be used for efficient optical switching. Initial phase modulation of only five fibers is used for switching control.
