Abstract
We present two potentially interesting new venues in all-optical signal processing. First, we demonstrate experimentally that collisions between vector (Manakov-like) solitons involve energy exchange; this feature could be explored for all-optical signal processing. Second, our detailed theoretical studies show how inserting materials that support electro-magnetically induced transparency into microcavities enables design of microcavities with extraordinarily long lifetimes, and enables all-optical signal processing at single photon power levels.
