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)

In the paper, we review our work on heterogeneous III-V-on-silicon photonic components and circuits for applications in optical communication and sensing. We elaborate on the integration strategy and describe a broad range of devices realized on this platform covering a wavelength range from 850 nm to 3.85 μm.
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)
