Title: Feasibility of fullerene thin films for high-speed all-optical switching

Abstract

We measured the optical nonlinearity of fullerene thin films (C{sub 60},C{sub 70}) from 710--850 nm and determined the figure of merit for all-optical switching. We also demonstrated, to our knowledge, the first fullerene-based all-optical switch.
