Paper Abstract

We demonstrate Digital Optical Switches (DOS) on InP based on carrier-injection and on the quantum-confined Stark effect (QCSE). The active waveguide core is composed of either a double-heterostructure of InGaAsP for carrier-injection or a InGaAs-InGaAsP for reverse bias operation. O-Ion implantation was employed to isolate the branches of the DOS instead of the usual isolation by etching employed elsewhere.
