• All-optical switching based on inverse Raman scattering in liquid-core optical fibers 

      Kieu, K.; Schneebeli, L.; Merzlyak, E.; Hales, Joel M.; DeSimone, A.; Perry, Joseph W.; Norwood, Robert A.; Peyghambarian, Nasser (Georgia Institute of TechnologyOptical Society of America, 2012-03)
      We report on a new platform for all-optical switching based on inverse Raman scattering in liquids. Narrowband switching, which could be suitable for wavelength-division-multiplexed applications, is demonstrated using ...
    • High-performance photorefractive polymer operating at 1550 nm with near-video-rate response time 

      Tay, Savaş; Thomas, Jayan; Eralp, Muhsin; Li, Guoqiang; Norwood, Robert A.; Schülzgen, Axel; Yamamoto, Michiharu; Barlow, Stephen; Walker, Gregory A.; Marder, Seth R.; Peyghambarian, Nasser (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAmerican Institute of Physics, 2005-10)
      The development of a high-performance photorefractive polymer composite operating at 1550 nm is reported. We show 40% internal diffraction efficiency with response time of 35 ms and a net gain of 20 cm ⁻¹ in four-wave ...
    • Planar photonic crystals infiltrated with nanoparticle/polymer composites 

      Tay, Savaş; Thomas, Jayan; Momeni, Babak; Askari, Murtaza; Adibi, Ali; Hotchkiss, Peter J.; Jones, Simon C.; Marder, Seth R.; Norwood, Robert A.; Peyghambarian, Nasser (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAmerican Institute of Physics, 2007-11)
      Infiltration of planar two-dimensional silicon photonic crystals with nanocomposites using a simple yet effective melt processing technique is presented. The nanocomposites that were developed by evenly dispersing ...
