Paper Abstract

A new type of GaAs/GaA1A5 bridge-contacted ridge-waveguide (BCRW)twin-stripe laser with two asymmetrical waveguide channels is reported for realizing high speed optically induced near-field intensity switching, which can be used for digital optical logic devices as optical inverters, (N)OR- or (N)AND-gates. Optimum performance is achieved for equal wavelengths of the injected optical input signal and the switching twin-stripe laser. The total response time for one switching cycle is 70 p5.
