We demonstrate, experimentally and theoretically, excitable nanosecond optical pulses in optoelectronic integrated circuits operating at telecommunication wavelengths (1550 nm) comprising a nanoscale double barrier quantum well resonant tunneling diode (RTD) photo-detector driving a laser diode (LD).

We investigate a photonic regenerative memory based upon a neuromorphic oscillator with a delayed self-feedback (autaptic) connection. We disclose the existence of a unique temporal response characteristic of localized structures enabling an ideal support for bits in an optical buffer memory for storage and reshaping of data information. We link our(More)
A hybrid optoelectronic integrated circuit (OEIC) comprising a laser diode (LD) driven by a resonant tunnelling diode (RTD) can output various optical and electrical signal patterns that include self-sustained oscillations, sub-harmonic and harmonic locking and unlocked signals, with potential applications in optical communication systems.
We propose and demonstrate a simple and stable low-phase noise optoelectronic oscillator (OEO) that uses a laser diode, an optical fiber delay line and a resonant tunneling diode (RTD) free-running oscillator that is monolithic integrated with a waveguide photo-detector. The RTD-OEO exhibits single-side band phase noise power below -100 dBc/Hz with more(More)
We investigate the dynamics of optoelectronic oscillator (OEO) systems based on resonant tunneling diode photodetector (RTD-PD) and laser diode hybrid integrated circuits. We demonstrate that RTD-based OEOs can be noise-activated in either monostable or bistable operating conditions, providing a rich variety of signal outputs—spiking, square pulses,(More)
Phase-locked oscillators based on resonant tunneling diodes are used in this study to implement transceiver components that perform conversion between optical and wireless phase shift-keyed signals using injection-locked oscillator techniques. Three different links are demonstrated at frequencies of 940 MHz, 1.3 GHz, and 3.2 GHz that are capable of locking(More)
We demonstrate a photonic bistable spiking circuit with a graphene excitable laser for cascadable logic. This technology could be a potential candidate for applications in novel all-optical devices for information processing and computing. Photonic neuromorphic processing exploits the biophysics of neuronal computation algorithms [1] to provide a wide range(More)
We show experimental results of clock recovery from return-to-zero (RZ) format data by using injection locking of a free-running optoelectronic oscillator (OEO) circuit, which consists of a resonant tunneling diode (RTD) oscillator integrated circuit with both a detector and optical source. Error free extraction of a clock signal from the RTD-OEO is shown(More)
We report on photo-detectors consisting of an optical waveguide that incorporates a resonant tunneling diode (RTD). Operating at wavelengths around 1.55 μm in the optical communications C band we achieve maximum sensitivities of around 0.29 A/W which is dependent on the bias voltage. This is due to the nature of RTD nonlinear current-voltage characteristic(More)
