T. H. Wood, C. A. Burrus, R. S. Tucker, J. S. Weiner, D. A. B. Miller, D. S. Chemla, T. C. Damen, A. C. Gossard and W. Wiegmann, "100 ps Waveguide Multiple Quantum Well (MQW) Optical Modulator with 10:1 On/Off Ratio," Electronics Lett. 21, 693-694 (1985).

By incorporating two quantum wells into a capillary waveguide, the authors have made the first MQW optical modulator with an on/off ratio of at least 10:1. Furthermore, this device was used to generate an optical pulse less than 100 ps long, the fastest to data with an MQW device
