The authors demonstrate an optical-level shifter and a modulator whose transmission varies linearly with drive current, both based on a new, negative-feedback mode of operation of the recently discovered quantum-well self-electro-optic effect device. The system is compatible with both laser diodes as low-power semiconductor electronics and is applicable in both analog and digital optical processing. An extension of the system gives inverted, linear modulation of a coherent beam by an incoherent light source
