D. A. B. Miller, J. E. Henry, A. C. Gossard and J. H. English, "Integrated Quantum Well Self-Electro-Optic Effect Device: 2x2 Array of Optically Bistable Switches," Appl. Phys. Lett. 49, 821-823 (1986).

The authors demonstrate 2*2 arrays of optically bistable devices with very uniform optical characteristics. They are fabricated from an integrated self-electro-optic effect device structure consisting of a quantum well p-i-n diode grown in series with a load photodiode. Operating power can be optically controlled with a separate beam between approximately 40 pW and >470 mu W with associated switching times of approximately 10 s and less than 2 mu s
