Abstract
We consider switching characteristics of the nonlinear unidirectional coupler embedded in the photorefractive medium with purely diffusion nonlinearity. Transmission characteristics for both two- and three-waveguide couplers are presented. It is shown that the part of energy transmitted into the second waveguide in two-waveguide coupler monotonically decreases with increase of input energy i.e. no threshold energy value exists. It is also shown that due to the specific character of diffusion nonlinearity transmission characteristics of the three- waveguide coupler strongly depends on the relative disposition of the input waveguide.
