Abstract

We have demonstrated the first transistor that simultaneously operated as a transistor and as a laser - the "transistor laser" (2004). The insertion of quantum-wells and tilted charge in the short base of a transistor reduces recombination lifetime below 30 ps which is critical for extending the direct modulation bandwidth of the semiconductor laser towards 100 GHz. Three-port operation expands the use of the transistor laser to electronic-photonic integrated circuits.
