Paper Abstract

A new single-element broad-area laser has been designed, fabricated, and tested for use as an integrated optical memory element or logic gate. The design incorporates a square gain section and an intracavity saturable absorber for each of the two orthogonal cavities. The devices lases in two spatially orthogonal modes that can be independently modulated by the two saturable absorbers.
