Abstract : There is considerable interest in the study of strong nonlinear effects in integrated optics for use in optical switching. Nonlinear thin films have already been studied extensively by both analytical and numerical techniques. Only in more complex nonlinear waveguides, however, can one obtain very high power density for moderate input power through two-dimensional field confinement in a tiny cross-section.
