Abstract
A twin-core polymer optical fiber doped with a conjugated biochemical ,?-carotene is fabricated for all-optical fiber switching. Nonlinear coupling and optical switching are observed between the two cores of the fiber. Experimental results are analyzed based on the coupled-mode theory and the nonlinear effects of this fiber were examined.
