Paper Abstract

A new type of integral-optics bistable element, based on electroabsorption waveguide distributed feedback structure, is proposed and investigated. A model of the device is formulated to calculate its main electrical and optical characteristics. The element has high on/off ratio (more than 10) in a bistable regime, the switching power is less than 5 - 6 mW, while the switching time is limited only by the RC-constant of the electrical circuit and is less than 10 ps.
