Abstract

We propose a novel all-optical wavelength auto-router based on spatial solitons. By using the swing effect of spatial solitons in a Kerr-type nonlinear medium, the proposed nonlinear waveguide structure could function as a self-routing wavelength division multiplexer (WDM). It could be a potential key component in the applications of ultra-high-speed and ultra-high-capacity optical communications and optical data processing systems.
