Abstract

Several different semiconductor device structures for accomplishing all-optical signal processing have been proposed, but they nearly all employ the semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) as a central element. In this talk we will discuss the physical processes in SOA's that are important in determining the speed of SOA based switches. We shall consider both devices based on incoherent processes, such as optically induced cross-gain and cross-phase modulation as well as devices employing coherent four-wave mixing.
