Lu Deng, Runbing Li, Chengjie Zhu, Edward W. Hagley

Abstract

Using a polarization-selective-Kerr-phase-shift technique we demonstrate an all-optical polarization gate in an atomic gain medium with the control-field intensity equivalent to 20 photons of 10 nanoseconds propagating in a 5 μm mode diameter photonic fiber.
