Abstract

The intensity dependent optical properties of 4-dialkylamino-4'nitro- stilbene polymer channel waveguides were measured at 1319 nm with a pulse modulated Mach-Zehnder interferometer to be n2=0.8×10 -13 cm2/W and β2<0.08 cm/GW. This material is promising for all-optical switching at 1319 nm because it satisfies both the W and T figures of merit.
