We report a new type of optoelectronic device, a self‐electro‐optic effect device (SEED), which uses the same GaAs/GaAlAs multiple quantum well material simultaneously as an optical detector and modulator. Using a series resistor and constant voltage bias supply the SEED shows optical bistabilty (OB) of the recently discovered type which relies on increasing absorption and requires no mirrors. OB is seen at room temperature from ∼850–860 nm, at powers as low as 670 nW or switching times as… CONTINUE READING
