All-Optical Bistable Switching and Signal Regeneration in a Semiconductor Layered Distributed-Feedback/Fabry-Perot Structure

We report the experimental observation of optical bistable switching in a combined distributed-feedback/Fabry-Perot structure. The sample had a high switching contrast with almost zero reflectivity in the on-state. A turnoff time as short as 4 ns was measured. The threshold power for bistability was about 2 mW. Bistable switching with the memory effect and a potential application for all-optical signal regeneration were demonstrated.
