Paper Abstract

Arrays of fast smart pixels are the building blocks of high speed, high throughput photonic switching systems and spatial light modulators. Our work describes the operation of smart pixels with picosecond mode-locked laser pulses, and addresses some of the issues in the fast operation of smart pixels: switching energy, switching speed, dynamic range.
