Optical switching, four wave mixing, grating.


In this work we investigate an all-optical switching node that can be controlled by means of a transient grating, which is formed by interference of two Gaussian beams. This design considers 3-D architecture of switching fabrics, real profile of Gaussian beams and fast switching time requirements. Four Wave Mixing (FWM) technique is applied in the evanescent field region of waveguide, showing (3) nonlinearity. The formed grating is analysed by standart methods to obtain reflection coefficient and then coupling coefficient for power exchange between waveguides.
