Paper Abstract

Modulators and detectors integrated in two-dimensional arrays are key elements for parallel optical signal processing. Self electrooptic effect devices (SEEDs) have been suggested as switching elements for these systems. SEEDs are employed as gates, memories or optical flip-flops {1,2,3]. Various logic functions can be implemented using suitable optical feedback. The switching characteristics can be controlled by the internal structure of the epitaxial layers of the device. In the present study we investigate inverted bistable switching and optimized optical modulation in SEEDs with resonant optical feedback.
