10 June 1994 Diode laser logic for use as smart pixels for optical signal processing

Diode Laser Logic is a complete, new logic family comprised of Q- switched lasers and photodetectors. The lasers and detectors are monolithically integrated on multiple quantum well laser heterostructure with semi-insulating substrates. Preliminary results indicate an ON/OFF contrast ratio better than 500:1 and a gain in excess of 20. As a result, the devices can be cascaded to form more complex optical circuits. In addition to introducing the Diode Laser Logic family, a basic model is presented and the fabrication process is discussed.
