We investigate all-optical Zener tunneling in arrays of identical channel waveguides in undoped nematic liquid crystals. By all-optically inducing a refractive acceleration we demonstrate a new technique for interband tunneling as well as a novel approach to optical switching.

Abstract

We investigate all-optical Zener tunneling in arrays of identical channel waveguides in undoped nematic liquid crystals. By all-optically inducing a refractive acceleration we demonstrate a new technique for interband tunneling as well as a novel approach to optical switching.
