Paper Abstract

Ultrafast optoelectronic devices are crucial for fulfilling the future requirement of network throughput exceeding 1 Tb/s. A variety of ultrafast phenomena in semiconductors are attractive for developing such new optoelectronic devices. This paper discusses requirements of ultrafast optical communication and signal processing systems and devices necessary for them. Recent advances in the development of ultrafast semiconductor-based optoelectronic devices including lasers and optical switches are described with an emphasis on new types of ultrafast all-optical switches.
