A new class of materials for nonlinear optics and nonlinear optical devices

A new class of materials, glasses doped with micro-crystallites of semiconductors CdSxSe1-x, with crystalline sizes ranging from 50 Å to 1000 Å, has been emerging with great promise for application in nonlinear signal processing and nonlinear optical devices. Their rapid response time of a few tens of picoseconds, combined with room-temperature operation and low materials cost, make them exceptionally attractive for nonlinear device applications.
