Paper Abstract

We describe an optoelectronic microwave switch that exploits the high optical sensitivity of the air-GaAs interface. With an optical power of 100 micro-W, the switch has an insertion loss of 3.4 dB and an isolation of greater than 20 dB from 0 to 10 GHz. No electrical power is needed.
