Abstract
A cadmium Sulphide doped fiber is used to design an all-optical Kerr shutter arranged as a standard Mach-Zehnder interferometer. The high third order susceptibility of cadmium sulphide enabled low power, in milliwatt, operation of the device. At a pump power of 25 mW, in an interferometer of length 15 cm, the switching speed was calculated to be 100 gigabit/second for the switch.
