Abstract

A detailed experimental investigation of the all-optical switching properties of an InGaAsP MQW electroabsorption modulator has been performed. Using high pump pulse energies and high reverse bias settings, switching windows were demonstrated with extinction ratios up to 25 dB and widths down to 10 ps, possibly facilitating 100/10 Gb/s demultiplexing
