Electro-optical bistability in semiconductor laser

Curtis Wang, Milton Feng, Nick Holonyak

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Optical bistability in a single semiconductor transistor laser are realized and demonstrated based on the modulation of cavity photon density via the base quantum-wells for photon-generation and collector intra-cavity photon assisted tunneling for photon-absorption.
