Paper Abstract

Recent results in the modeling and optimization of semiconductor etalon-based devices for optical switching and signal-processing applications are reviewed. Critical device performance criteria including contrast, cascadability, switching speed and energy are evaluated for both one- and two-wavelength device concepts.
