Abstract:

We describe a novel technique for performing a single-shot optical cross-correlation in nanowaveguides. Our scheme is based on four-wave mixing (FWM) between two orthogonally polarized input signals propagating with different velocities due to polarization mode dispersion. The cross-correlation is determined by measuring the spectrum of the idler wave generated by the FWM process.
