Advances in optical fiber and semiconductor technology have progressed to the degree that nonlinear optical signal processing can be demonstrated at extraordinarily high data rates. In this talk I will review some of our work in photonic crystal fibers, silicon nano wires, and AlGaAs optical waveguides.


After receiving his PhD in Physics from MIT, Gary Carter worked for MIT Lincoln Laboratories in the areas of Infrared Radar and later in Free Space Optical Communications. At GTE Laboratories, his research focused on nonlinear optics in semiconductors and polymers. Since coming to UMBC his research has focused on bio-sensors, optical communications, and nonlinear optical signal processing.
