Abstract

An all-epitaxial GaAs/GaAlAs optically bistable Fabry-Perot etalon, designed to maximise the band-edge resonant electronic nonlinearity relative to unwanted thermal effects, has been demonstrated to be capable of being held CW in either of the bistable states. Switch times of <40 ns were recorded together with a critical switch power of <700 µW.
