Rare earth materials for population density control with ultra-high-speed optical pulses.

Dai, D.C. and Luo, Q. and Li, R.H. and Yu, X.Y. and Qiu, Z.R. and Zhou, J.Y. and Yang, Y.S. (2000) 'Rare earth materials for population density control with ultra-high-speed optical pulses.', IEEE photonics technology letters., 12 (8). pp. 1034-1036.


The rare earth materials, KNdFe(CN)6.3H2O (KNFCN), NdFe(CN)6.4H2O (NFCN), and NdFeO3 (NFO) are characterized by absorption and fluorescence spectra. The dephasing times (T2) and the fluorescent lifetimes (T1) of the materials are determined. The critical bit rate (Wcrit) for ultra-high-speed population density control is discussed. The feasibility of using the materials for ultra-high-speed, all-optical switching devices is presented
