Abstract

We present the modeling and experiment on the intensity-dependent phase shift of a nonlinear optical phase-shifter based on vertical micro-cavity saturable absorber for high-speed response. We demonstrated the 25ps transient response with a large negative nonlinear phase shift of over -0.7 radian. Our device would enable us to control the phase of high speed optical pulses including the compensation of fiber nonlinear effects in optical domain.
