In this paper, we overview recent status of polarization-bistable VCSELs and their applications for all-optical signal processing. All-optical flip-flop operation was achieved at a record low bias current of 0.85 mA using 980-nm polarization-bistable VCSELs with an oxidation confinement structure. Using four 1.55-μm polarization-bistable VCSELs, a 4-bit… CONTINUE READING
