Abstract: The operating characteristics of novel all-optical integrated optics devices based on strong nonlinearities are reviewed, as are all-optical guided-wave devices which are nonlinear extensions of well-known linear integrated optics devices. A comparison of how different material systems meet the requirements for alloptical guided-wave devices is also presented.
