"Optically-Controlled Optical Gate Using a Double Diode Structure," Presented at
the Lasers and Electro-Optics Society Twelfth Annual Meeting, San Francisco, CA (November
8-11, 1999). Paper ThN2.
A new device concept enabling
ultrashort optically controlled optical gating is demonstrated. Using a dual-diode GaAs
multiple-quantum well (MQW) structure, low power surface-normal switching times of ~10 ps
are achieved in this proof-of-principle device.
