Abstract
The optical fiber fabrication technology based on Bismuth oxide (Bi2O3) material has advanced significantly in recent years and has resulted in the production of a variety of high quality of Bi2O3 based optical fibers: for example, rare-earth doped Bi2O3 fibers and highly nonlinear Bi2O3 fibers (Bi-NLF). One of the most striking and attractive possibilities offered by the Bi2O3 based optical fibers is the opportunity to implement a range of nonlinear optical signal processing devices with only a meter or less length of the fiber due to its ultra-high material nonlinear coefficient, which is 100 times higher than that of silica. The state-of-the-art Bismuth Oxide based nonlinear optical fiber technology for nonlinear optical signal processing devices is reviewed from a viewpoint of possible application for telecommunications.
