Optically controlled optical gate with an optoelectronic dual diode structure – theory and experiment

Abstract

A low-power, surface-normal optically controlled optical gate that incorporates two stacked AlGaAs diodes has been tested using both picosecond and femtosecond pulses. The device opens and closes within 20 picoseconds with a 30% reflectivity change. Repeated gating with 20 picosecond periods has been demonstrated— a repetition period significantly faster… (More)
