Ultrafast all-optical glass fiber switches

The promise of achieving ultrarapid all-optical signal processing is attracting considerable interest. Many of the necessary components have been available for some time, including lasers that produce subpicosecond pulses, optical fiber waveguides that support tremendous band-widths, and optical materials that have nonlinearities with femtosecond response.
