We demonstrate class I excitability in optically injected microdisk lasers, and propose a possible optical spiking neuron design. The neuron has a clear threshold and an integrating behavior, leading to an output rate-input rate dependency that is comparable to the characteristic of sigmoidal artificial neurons. We also show that the optical phase of the(More)
We discuss properties and applications of heterogeneously integrated microdisk lasers coupled to an asymmetrically reflecting bus waveguide. Specific properties of interest for optical interconnect are unidirectionality and sensitivity to external feedback. We also discuss the application of such lasers for low power all-optical signal regeneration.
We report the demonstration of an all-optical, bias free and error-free (bit-error-rate ~10(-12)), 10 Gbit/s non-return-to-zero (NRZ) to return-to-zero (RZ) data format conversion using a 7.5 µm diameter III-V-on-silicon microdisk resonator. The device is completely processed in a 200 mm CMOS pilot line. The data format conversion is based on the phenomenon(More)
