Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The response of a nonlinear directional coupler excited by pulses shorter in duration than the nonlinearity response time is analysed for one- and two-photon nonlinearities exhibiting both loss and saturation. Large pulse distortion is predicted in a number of cases. © 1987.
