Paper Abstract

After a brief introduction of optical bistable operation of semiconductor active devices such as LDs and SOAs, recent progress in polarization bistable VCSELs and their applications for all-optical signal processing are presented. Applications include all-optical flip-flop operation with very low switching energy and high repetition rate, all-optical signal regeneration, and optical buffer memory.
