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 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 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.

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.

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)
Nanoscale light sources using metal cavities have been proposed to enable high integration density, efficient operation at low energy per bit and ultra-fast modulation, which would make them attractive for future low-power optical interconnects. For this application, such devices are required to be efficient, waveguide-coupled and integrated on a silicon(More)
