Abstract
The incorporation of semiconductor materials into the optical fiber geometry provides an important step towards enhancing the optoelectronic functionality of conventional fiber infrastructures, as well as allowing for the construction of robust devices with novel waveguiding properties. In this paper we review our progress in characterizing the nonlinear transmission properties of semiconductor optical fibers with the view to developing integrated all-optical devices. The nonlinear performance of the fibers has been benchmarked through demonstrations of high speed all-optical wavelength conversion, modulation, and continuum generation.
