An optoelectronic integrated device that carries out digital optical functions is designed in silicon technology. The device achieves the NOR gate, which has input and output optical signals, and is designed to detect and emit a 600-nm-wavelength light. The active detection area is 1 mm2, and it can achieve frequencies of the order of megahertz.
